Describe the educational and informational objective of the program and how it meets the definition of Core Programming. "Teen Kids News" covers a wide range of topics -- from hard-hitting facts about the Iraq war and life after Sept. 11 to ways to tell whether a boy or girl is right for you that are usually specifically tailored toward the teen audience. The show is anchored and reported completely by teens (both boys and girls) from a range of diverse backgrounds. Some topics may be difficult for sensitive younger teens, and some mature teens may find the format corny -- but for most, this series presents a peer-oriented opportunity for them to learn about real happenings in their world. Families can talk about the specific stories that are covered in each episode. Teens interested in a particular topic may want to dig up more information through the Internet or via a trip to the library.
