People can express their opinions through the media. That is why the government believes that everyone in the Netherlands should have access to television, radio, newspapers and the internet. Public broadcasters play a role: they provide varied programmes for every group in society. It is also important for children to know how to make use of the media. The government helps not only children but also their parents and teachers in this respect.
