About PBS


PBS LearningMedia (pbslearningmedia.org) is a new, free service for all teachers, students and families nationwide that helps foster classroom innovation and engagement. In addition to a rich public media library, PBS LearningMedia has content contributed from other publicly funded organizations to deliver thousands of resources for use in the classroom and with home-schoolers.

PBS and our member stations are America’s largest classroom, the nation’s largest stage for the arts and a trusted window to the world. In addition, PBS's educational media helps prepare children for success in school and opens up the world to them in an age-appropriate way. 

We invite you to find out more about America’s largest public media enterprise.
