Sesame Street debuted November 10, 1969. Researchers at UW-Madison recently analyzed Sesame Street’s positive effects across a number of learning outcomes: cognitive (including literacy and numeracy), learning about the world (including health and safety knowledge), and social reasoning and attitudes. Sesame Street has a global reach of at least 156 million children in the 0-7 age range.

Forty-four years after its inception, Sesame Street continues to look for ways to connect with and support children in all sorts of circumstances. Earlier this year, it introduced a tool kit on incarceration–and Alex, the first Sesame Street character who has a parent in jail.
