Educationally/Insufficient? An Analysis of the Availability & Educational Quality of Children’s E/I Programming reveals substantial deficiencies in children’s educational television programming and raises serious doubts about broadcasters’ commitments to the nation’s children. It evaluated the quality of programs claimed as educational/informational (E/I) by commercial stations and found that only one of every eight E/I shows (13%) is rated as “highly educational.” In contrast, almost twice as many, nearly one of every four (23%) were classified in the lowest category of “minimally educational.”
