Education is the acquisition and storage of information. Sensory input is how we acquire new information, Whether that be from TV or book or smartphone or computer screen or simply interaction with our surroundings and other people.
If after watching TV we are able to remember and recall what we have seen, Then we have been educated.
I feel like people forget things like Sesame Street, Bill Nye, The OG Mickey Mouse Club, And so much more. We don't only get smarter from reading and studying. We have to have soft skills like compassion and empathy, Which is exactly what these shows have taught us, Whether we know it or not.
