Describe the educational and informational objective of the program and how it meets the definition of Core Programming. Raven, a young teen who has inherited her grandmother's trait of clairvoyance, is a normal, happy and resourceful young woman. However, at times Raven worries that she is a freak because of her clairvoyant abilities. She has a younger brother, Cory, age ten. They are typical siblings, with the tension and rivalry that most siblings experience. Raven attends public high school. Both parents are employed outside the home. They are loving parents, and good disciplinarians. Raven is often responsible for the after-school safety and activities of her brother, Cory. Her closest friends are Chelsea and Eddie, who are fiercely committed to environmental issues and sports, respectively. Raven's parents and closest friends know about her visions of the immediate future. The premonitions often prompt her to attempt to intervene before trouble occurs. Sometimes Raven's interventions backfire, and at other times the foreseen events come true, bringing embarrassment or sadness. Raven learns valuable lessons from her blunders and transgressions. Thus, the visions set up issues that the Core episodes of this series explore. The series uses humor to convey strong, relevant messages about growing up. Some of the issues that are the focus of episodes are sibling rivalry, popularity, loyalty, self-acceptance, dealing with authority (school and parental), honesty, coping with jealousy, and consequences of lying or cheating. This program meets the definition of "core programming" because: 1) It serves the educational and informational needs of children ages 16 and under. 2) It airs at 10:30am. 3)It is regularly scheduled on Saturday. 4) It is 30:00 minutes in length. 5) the educational/informational objective and target child audience for this program are specified on air and to program guide publishers.

Describe the educational and informational objective of the program and how it meets the definition of Core Programming. Kuzco, a youth who is heir to the throne of a mythical Andean country, must graduate from Kuzco Academy before he can become the official Emperor of his land. He faces the intellectual, physical and social challenges that all teens face, all the while conscious that his life's work will be to rule fairly and nobly. Kuzco wonders whether being Emperor for the rest of his days will be a pleasure or a trap. In many episodes Kuzco must thwart attempts by the nefarious Yzma and her dimwitted henchman, Kronk, to stop him from doing well in school. If Kuzco fails at his academic requirements Yzma stands a chance to become Empress. Kuzco, who is by nature inclined to take the easy way out of tough situations, struggles to complete his assignments and stay on track. Only if he remains steadfast, studies hard, learns from his mistakes, graduates, and can relate to his citizens at all levels of society, will he ascend the throne and become Emperor. His loyal friend and heart-throb, Malina, an excellent student, attempts to help Kuzco stay out of trouble and achieve his goals. Series episodes explore relevant messages such as coping with peer pressure, respecting authority, taking responsibility, adhering to foster family and school rules, honesty, acceptance of differences, building self-esteem and trust.

Describe the educational and informational objective of the program and how it meets the definition of Core Programming. Those episodes of The Suite Life of Zack and Cody that air on ABC as Core Programming address concerns close to the hearts of older children and tweens and deliver life lessons tailored for that audience. Our stories take place in a luxury hotel in Boston, where twelve-year-old identical twins Zack and Cody live with their divorced mom, a lounge singer for the Tipton Hotel. The boys attend the local public middle school and are in the same class. One of the twins is polite and shy and excels in academics, while the other, an athlete and extrovert, barely scrapes by in school, due to disinterest and lack of effort, and instead often instigates wacky plans for outwitting hotel authorities, caregivers, and their mother. The boy's mother dates and would like to remarry. Their father is a professional rock musician who is on the road much of the year, but who stays in touch with his boys. This sets up occasional parental conflicts about discipline and expectations. Parallel stories involve two teenage girls: heiress London Tipton, whose father owns the hotel, and Maddie, the girl who works after school at the hotel snack bar. Unlike London, Maddie attends a parochial girls school and comes from a working class family. Both Zack and Cody have crushes on Maddie, who is four years older than they. Series episodes explore sibling rivalry, conflicts with parents, divorce, household and hotel rules, family income limitations, responsibility, self-esteem, and peer pressure. This program meets the definition of "core programming" because: 1) It serves the educational and informational needs of children ages 16 and under. 2) It airs at 11:30am. 3)It is regularly scheduled on Saturday. 4) It is 30:00 minutes in length. 5) the educational/informational objective and target child audience for this program are specified on air and to program guide publishers.
