Our CEO's Statement on Twitter's Mass Layoffs and Erosion of Content Moderation Capabilities

Most technology wasn't built with kids in mind. We're on a mission to change that.

We believe in media that inspires and entertains families of all kinds. In technology that protects privacy and supports communities. In learning tools that prepare students and teachers for success in a connected world. Discover how we're working to make the digital world better for kids and families.
