Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.

Racist, Sexist, and sexual!

I started watching this with my daughter who is 5, because she was watching it. I immediately noticed the entire cast was white, except for a Asian janitor, who's name was Dang, with a really heavy accent, who they explicitly made dumber than the rest of the cast. Then second episode Dang was talking about rice fields! And then in the second episode, the girl Brianna is a big stereotype about the dumb blond pretty girl. Also, I noticed something else: Only the boys are smart! And then there is a teacher hitting on a student! It doesn't matter if he is age appropriate. It teaches kids a bad message, that it is okay to date your teachers. If I could, I would rate this zero stars. Do not show this to anyone.

Too much sex

racist!

My 13 year old watched it and told me that it was racist right away! Asian janitor portrayed as dumb and with stereotypical accent. This show should be taken off Netflix and all networks.
