Discovery Education conducts ongoing reviews of all content in the Discovery Education media library. To assist in the process and ensure impartial review of materials, Discovery Education also works in partnership with external content experts across curriculum areas, including teachers, curriculum supervisors, and district-level administrators.
All content in the Discovery Education library is first reviewed for its appropriateness to the K-12 curriculum. Programming reflects and is connected to state, national, and international standards in core-curricular content areas and incorporates exemplary instructional methodologies and approaches.
Materials are reviewed to verify accuracy of content and ensure that content is up-to-date.
The database is keyed to concepts and content appropriate for specific grade levels. The language of the programming is both age- and grade-level-appropriate.
Programming must represent a diversity of cultures and abilities and represents both sexes fairly.
Discovery Education includes only content with the highest overall production quality.
