Today’s Anniversary: PBS

It's October 5, and on this date in 1970, the Public Broadcasting Service, better known as PBS, began operations.  PBS airs educational programming for people of all ages, starting with shows like Mister Rogers' Neighborhood and Sesame Street and continuing with such things as documentaries on science, history and more.  Our accredited online high school courses and high school correspondence courses can teach you many things, but PBS is one of many places to go if you're looking for more information about a specific subject or topic.
