Disney “Perplexed” By State Department Official’s Request to Use Frozen as Teaching Aid

What do you think about Papp’s idea to use Frozen as a teaching aid? Personally, I think it’s exciting to see the power of a fandom being taken so seriously, especially a fandom that’s particularly beloved by young girls. Perhaps Disney could be tapped to teach kids about economics, too? I imagine Kristoff the ice salesman would have some strong words to say about supply and demand.
