UPPER MIDWEST SIX-STATE EDUCATIONAL TELEVISION NETWORK SURVEY, IOWA, MINNESOTA, NEBRASKA, NORTH DAKOTA, SOUTH DAKOTA, WISCONSIN.
SCHWARZWALDER, JOHN C.; AND OTHERS
A DETERMINATION OF THE FEASIBILITY AND DESIRABILITY OF A SIX-STATE EDUCATIONAL TELEVISION NETWORK IN THE STATES OF IOWA, NEBRASKA, MINNESOTA, NORTH DAKOTA, SOUTH DAKOTA, AND WISCONSIN WAS CONDUCTED. IT WAS FOUND THAT A SIX-STATE, EDUCATIONAL TELEVISION NETWORK WAS POSSIBLE FROM A TECHNICAL VIEWPOINT. THE NETWORK WOULD USE ONLY EDUCATIONAL STATIONS ALREADY ON THE AIR AND ADDITIONAL VHF RESERVED CHANNELS ALREADY ALLOCATED TO EDUCATION BY THE FCC. IT WOULD SERVE ALMOST THREE-QUARTERS OF THE PEOPLE WITHIN THE SIX STATES. EDUCATIONAL TELEVISION COULD PROVIDE TEACHERS FOR FOR SUBJECTS NOT BEING TAUGHT IN RURAL AND OTHER SCHOOLS UNABLE TO HAVE QUALIFIED TEACHERS IN THOSE SUBJECTS. IT COULD BRING CULTURAL AND VOCATIONAL PROGRAMS TO AREAS FAR DISTANT FROM THEIR SOURCE. THE CAPITAL COST OF ESTABLISHING A NETWORK WOULD BE APPROXIMATELY $2,000,000. THE OPERATING COSTS, ON THE BASIS OF A 25-HOUR WEEK, WOULD BE APPROXIMATELY $500,000 PER YEAR, OR AN AVERAGE OF LESS THAN $100,000 PER STATE. AN ADMINISTRATIVE PLAN WOULD BE DEVISED TO AVOID LEGAL OBJECTIONS TO THE USE OF THE NETWORK'S PUBLIC OR PRIVATE SCHOOLS, COLLEGES OR UNIVERSITIES.
