Educational Television programs


Recent data indicates that children in the United States on average spend more than three hours a day watching television. This invited “guest” into our homes has the potential to significantly shape our children’s development. In view of this, Congress determined that broadcast television stations – both commercial and non-commercial – have an obligation to offer educational and informational children’s programming. In addition, television licensees, cable operators and satellite providers must limit the amount of commercials aired during children’s programs.

In 1990, Congress enacted the Children’s Television Act (CTA) to increase the amount of educational and informational programming for children available on television. The CTA requires each broadcast television station in the United States to serve the educational and informational needs of children through its overall programming, including programming specifically designed to serve these needs (“core programming”). It also limits the amount of time broadcasters and cable operators can devote to advertisements during children’s programs.

The Federal Communications Commission (FCC) has adopted rules and guidelines to carry out the CTA’s educational programming mandate. Under the FCC’s rules and guidelines, television stations must:

  • air at least three hours per week of core programs;
  • identify core programs by displaying the symbol E/I throughout the program; and
  • provide parents and consumers with advance information about core programs and when they are being aired.

Core programming is specifically designed to serve the educational and informational needs of children 16 years of age and under, including the child’s intellectual/cognitive or social/emotional needs, additionally, core programming:

  • serves the educational and informational needs of children as a significant purpose;
  • is at least 30 minutes in length;
  • is aired between the hours of 7:00 a.m. and 10:00 p.m.;
  • is a regularly scheduled weekly program; and
  • is identified as specifically designed to educate and inform children by the display of the symbol E/I on the television screen throughout the program.

A central goal of the FCC’s rules is to provide parents and other members of the public with more information about educational television programming. This information helps parents guide their children’s television viewing and also encourages an ongoing dialogue between the public and TV stations about TV station performance under CTA.

To help accomplish this, the FCC’s rules require commercial television stations to identify a core educational program by displaying throughout the program the “E/I” symbol denoting that the program is a core educational and/or informational program. Commercial television stations must also provide information identifying these programs to publishers of program guides and TV listings.
