Sen. and Mrs. Rockefeller addressed the Parent-Teacher Association, an important advocacy group for children in America. They agreed that there are overwhelming problems concerning children in the U.S., but that the P.-T.A. should not become too pessimistic because that detracts from their ability to promote change.

The educational options are important so that parents and children can use the television as a tool to help children learn how to deal with the world. close
