FEDERAL PROGRAMS FOR EDUCATIONAL TELEVISION.
BYSTROM, JOHN W.
THE GROWTH AND PROGRESS OF EDUCATIONAL TELEVISION IS DESCRIBED. GRANTS FOR THE CONSTRUCTION OF NONCOMMERCIAL TELEVISION (TV) BROADCASTING STATIONS (EDUCATIONAL TV FACILITIES ACT), GRANTS OF SURPLUS PROPERTY UNDER THE NATIONAL DEFENSE EDUCATION ACT HAVE AIDED THE GROWTH OF EDUCATIONAL TV. GREATER USE IS MADE OF EDUCATIONAL TV BECAUSE OF GREATER USE OF ULTRA HIGH FREQUENCY (UHF) AND CHANNEL RESERVATIONS FOR EDUCATION MADE BY THE FEDERAL COMMUICATIONS COMMISSION (FCC). THE FOUR TYPES OF TV SERVICES WHICH ARE USED FOR EDUCATION ARE THE BROADCAST STATION, INSTRUCTIONAL TV FIXED SERVICE OPERATING FOR PARTICULAR RECEIVERS RATHER THAN FOR THE ENTIRE COMMUNITY, THE CABLE DISTRIBUTION SYSTEM PROVIDING FOR CLOSED CIRCUIT TV, AND THE TRANSMISSION OF SIGNALS FROM AN AIRPLANE TO A GROUND RECEIVING INSTITUTION. AN EXAMPLE OF THIS LAST SERVICE IS THE MIDWEST PROGRAM FOR AIRBORNE TELEVISION INSTRUCTION, INC. (MPATI). THE EDUCATIONAL TV FACILITIES ACT IS BASED ON LOCAL CONTROL. THIS LOCAL CONTROL CAN BE A COOPERATIVE VENTURE WITH BOTH CORPORATIONS AND ASSOCIATIONS TAKING PART. MOST SMALL SCHOOL SYSTEMS PROFIT FROM EDUCATIONAL TV WHICH MAKES POSSIBLE EFFECTIVE INSTRUCTIONAL METHODS, A GREATER RANGE OF CURRICULUM CHOICE, AND AN INCREASE IN THE AUTONOMY OF SCHOOL ADMINISTRATORS WHO ARE IN CONTROL OF THE USE OF EDUCATIONAL TV. COST OF EDUCATIONAL TV SYSTEMS VARIES CONSIDERABLY ACCORDING TO TYPE OF SERVICE AND AMOUNT OF USE. THIS ARTICLE WAS PUBLISHED IN THE SCHOOL BOARD JOURNAL, JUNE 1964.
