Sesame Street Has A New Character. And His Dad Is In Jail.

Below is a clip from a recent Sesame Street episode where the character of Alex is introduced. Alex is very sad in the clip because he is dealing with the fact that his father is incarcerated.

Here is the clip:

One of Sesame Street's missions has always been to be inclusive--to reach out to kids who come from all kinds of different families. And with approximately 2.3 million people in jails and prisons, the U.S. has a lot of kids who are likely to relate to Alex.

By the way, according to a New York Times piece from 2008, the United States has about 5% of the world's population, but we house about 25% of the world's prisoners. And, about 70% of those who are incarcerated in the U.S. are non-white minorities.

What do you think about Sesame Street reaching out to kids with a parent (most likely a dad) in prison?
