I don't exactly agree with this, but this is what someone just told me: Okay now, you know how much I appreciate the old, classic SS, and think that those old shows have timeless educational values. But what I heard is that kids today actually don't need it like they did all those years ago. I disagreed, responding with, "Well, then, where will they learn all their letters and numbers and everything??" And she said, that all that stuff is taught in preschool, and there are computer software games with all that stuff. You see, Sesame Street was first created back in the 60s, and from what I understand, I don't think preschool was that common. Is that true? And back then, it was really the only learning tool. I even had an English teacher that said that Sesame Street was a bad idea. She happens to not be the only one. When she had kids, she would actually not let them watch it. She didn't like the way that they ask a question, show a scene, and then immediately tell you the answer. That is, they never gave you time to think. And also, in case you didn't know, Sesame Street is not the only preschool educational show to this day, it competes against several others, and it didn't for about 25 years. As I said before, I don't necessarily agree with this. Does anyone else see what I'm saying, or does anyone else agree?
