Don't be naive..

Scam mercenery. Possibly. Looks very much like to me. I wrote quite a bit but the system brands my review as 'unfit language' to paraphrase and won't allow it. I think it is essentially 'false flag' marketing, to coin a phrase, possibly. They sneak in under guise of non-profit and do-gooding and 'allow' schools to 'participate' and then use that school association to claim govt and education dept approval and involvement. Making themselves quasi govt and sucking parents in. That's my last attempt at a post. If this doesn't work I'll give up on the site.

Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say (3 ):
Kids say (16 ):

That's an admirable mission, and the site could be a winner someday ... if it would simplify its directions, give more audio cues for younger kids who can't read fluently, and add more content (many features across the site still say "coming soon").

But for now, the little glitches -- like long loading times, missing content, and confusing directions (for example, "You need to hold the ctrl or shift button while clicking Woogies to add buddies or report misbehavior") -- are going to confuse many kids, especially those in early elementary grades who really need to learn the messages this site wants to teach. Unfortunately, many kids are more likely to choose a site that focuses more on playability and less on lessons.

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.
