THE SOUTH CAROLINA ETV STORY, PARTS 1 AND 2.
KALMBACH, R. LYNN; KNIGHT W.R.
SOUTH CAROLINA WAS A STATE SLOW IN DEVELOPMENT, 49TH IN PER CAPITA INCOME AND 47TH IN ILLITERACY. HOWEVER, EDUCATIONAL INADEQUACIES HAVE BEEN RECOGNIZED AND COOPERATIVE EFFORTS WERE MADE TO UPLIFT THE PEOPLE EDUCATIONALLY, ECONOMICALLY, AND SOCIALLY. PART I DESCRIBED THE NEED TO MAKE CHANGES IN THE EDUCATIONAL PROCESS. THE CLOSED-CIRCUIT APPROACH TO EDUCATIONAL TELEVISION (ETV) WAS ADOPTED. THE COOPERATION OF SUBJECTS IN FIVE CLASSROOMS AT A COST OF 460,000. IN 1963, 155 PUBLIC HIGH SCHOOLS, EIGHT COLLEGES, AND THE STATE UNIVERSITY WITH ITS FIVE EXTENSION CENTERS WERE INVOLVED AT A COST OF $1,295,000. BASIC ETV POLICIES INCLUDED THE USE OF TEAMWORK TEACHING, CONCENTRATION UPON BASIC SUBJECTS, THE PRODUCTION AND PRESERVATION OF COURSES ON VIDEO TAPE, AND THE USE OF THE FINEST QUALITY TECHNICAL EQUIPMENT. EDUCATOR ACCEPTANCE HAS INCREASED. THE LEGISLATURE HAS WHOLEHEARTEDLY BACKED THE PROGRAM WHICH IS PLANNED TO CONTINUE UNTIL ALL SCHOOLS, INCLUDING PRIVATE SCHOOLS AND INDEPENDENT COLLEGES, CAN HAVE ETV. IMPORTANT PARALLEL SERVICES WERE TEACHER TRAINING, ADULT EDUCATION, AND COMMUNITY USE OF SIX CHANNEL SYSTEM OPERATING FROM 8 A.M. TO 10 P.M. PART II DESCRIBED IN DETAIL THE REQUIREMENTS, THE TRANSMISSION FACILITIES, AND THE DEVELOPMENTAL EFFORTS OF THE AREA TELEPHONE COMPANIES TO PROVIDE A PRACTICAL AND HIGHLY RELIABLE NETWORK. THE COSTS WERE COMPARATIVELY LOW--$14 PER PUPIL ABOVE PREVIOUS COSTS. EIGHT MAPS SHOWED CABLE SYSTEMS AND STATIONS.
