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.

great show, but tread lightly

Disclaimer: I’ve only watched the first few episodes. The show is beautifully made and relatively well-written. I’ve enjoyed it so far. However, there are some parts that are a little iffy. In one scene, a student lifts up his teacher’s skirt to humiliate her. He doesn’t receive any punishment for this; the sexual harassment is quickly forgotten. There’s also an entire episode about losing weight, which could be detrimental to children and young people (especially young girls) who are struggling with their body image. I think it would be fine for kids to watch as long as their parent or guardian talks to them about the sensitive issues it brings up, like the aforementioned sexual harassment and eating disorders.

I feel like this is for more mature children because I have been witnessing some blood while I was watching the show, although it is a really good show, my mom and my aunt started watching this while she was 9
