Should The Simpsons be taught in school?
Parents at a school in Somerset have mounted a petition to stop teaching the cartoon series The Simpsons in a media course. What can children learn from cartoons?
More than 400 parents have signed the petition to stop Kingsmead Community School in Somerset teaching a sequence of the hit US cartoon series in a media module.
Parent Joseph Reynolds said the programme was not the right quality of learning material for his daughter and her classmates, but the school's governors have ruled that the cartoon should remain part of the course.
Do you think The Simpsons has a place in the school curriculum? Or should the school change its media module? What can cartoons like The Simpsons teach children?
