What Parents Need to Know

Parents need to know that this classic drama has some references to alcohol abuse but is otherwise free of iffy content. But younger kids may not really understand the class issues that it addresses, so it's most age-appropriate for tweens and up.

  • Families can talk about "corporate social responsibility," and the role of the government, the church, and the corporation in meeting society's needs. How socially responsible should corporations be? How should they balance the interests of employees, customers, shareholders, suppliers, and the community? Who is in a better position to help society, government, religion, or business? Which kinds of help are each uniquely able to provide?
