THE COST OF AUDIOVISUAL INSTRUCTION.
A REPORT OF A SURVEY ON THE COST OF AUDIOVISUAL INSTRUCTION IN THE NATION'S PUBLIC ELEMENTARY AND SECONDARY SCHOOLS DURING 1962-63 AND 1963-64 WAS PRESENTED. INCLUDED WERE THE TOTAL EXPENDITURES FOR AUDIOVISUAL INSTRUCTION AND SPECIFIC EXPENDITURES FOR AUDIOVISUAL SALARIES, AUDIOVISUAL EQUIPMENT, AND FILM RENTALS. MEDIANS WERE COMPUTED FOR (1) THE NATION AS A WHOLE, (2) THE NATION DIVIDED INTO NINE GEOGRAPHIC REGIONS, (3) SUCH CATEGORIES OF GENERAL EDUCATIONAL EXPENDITURE AS PROJECTORS AND FILMS, FILM PURCHASES AND RENTALS, FILM STRIPS, RECORDS AND RECORD PLAYERS, OVERHEAD PROJECTORS, LANGUAGE LABORATORIES, AND TELEVISION RECEIVERS, AND (4) A FULL- OR PART-TIME AUDIOVISUAL DIRECTOR. NATIONAL AUDIOVISUAL EXPENDITURES WERE $97.6 MILLION IN 1963-63 AND $111.1 MILLION IN 1963-64. THE LARGEST ITEM OF EXPENDITURE WAS SALARIES, THE SECOND LARGEST WAS LANGUAGE LABORATORIES. SURVEY RESULTS INDICATED THAT 80 PERCENT OF THE SCHOOLS RENTED FILMS, 70 PERCENT OF THE SCHOOLS USED RECORD PLAYERS, AND 25 PERCENT OF THE DISTRICTS PURCHASED TELEVISION EQUIPMENT. THE GREATEST INCREASE IN THE USE OF AN AUDIOVISUAL AID WAS WITH THE OVERHEAD PROJECTOR. THIS ARTICLE IS PUBLISHED IN "SCHOOL MANAGEMENT," JUNE 1964.
