Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say Not yet rated
Kids say (3):

The series is designed to inspire and motivate communities to rebuild their own schools and help teachers educate their children. It emphasizes the direct link between decent school facilities and a student's increased learning potential. It also notes that students are more motivated to stay in school when it is a safe and welcoming environment.

The series explores some of the challenges school districts face today, including the lack of government funding and ineffective supply distribution policies. But some of these conversations are so oversimplified and judgmental that they offer a false sense of what it would really take to improve the nation's educational system. Nonetheless, the show still manages to send a strong and positive message about the importance of education, and the power people have to make a difference.

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.
