The Powerful Effects of Sesame Street
A new paper by Melissa Kearney, an economics professor at the University of Maryland, and Phillip Levine, an economics professor at Wellesley College, finds that kids can learn as much from Sesame Street as a preschool classroom. The most authoritative study ever done on the impact of Sesame Street, finds that one of public TV's most recognizable shows has delivered lasting educational benefits to millions of American children - benefits as powerful as the ones children get from going to preschool.
