HALL, JOE
THE DEVELOPMENT AND FUTURE POSSIBILITIES OF EDUCATIONAL TELEVISION IN THE SCHOOL AND IN THE COMMUNITY ARE REVIEWED FROM A SCHOOL SUPERINTENDENT'S STANDPOINT. THE RESULTS OF AN EDUCATIONAL TELEVISION PROJECT INSTITUTED TO SOLVE THE PROBLEMS CAUSED BY AN OVERSIZE SCHOOL POPULATION AND THE NATIONAL TEACHER SHORTAGE SHOW THAT TELEVISION STUDENTS IN LARGE CLASSES ACHIEVE AS WELL OR BETTER THAN NONTELEVISION GROUPS. ELEMENTARY SCHOOLS IN THE PROJECT ARE ORGANIZED SO THAT HALF OF THE PUPILS WORK IN SMALL CLASSES FOR HALF OF THE DAY WHILE THE OTHER HALF ARE IN LARGE CLASSES. JUNIOR HIGH SCHOOLS IN THE PROJECT USE TELEVISION FOR UNITED STATES HISTORY, CIVICS, AND SCIENCE. SENIOR HIGH SCHOOLS USE TELEVISION FOR ENGLISH, BIOLOGY, AND AMERICAN HISTORY. IN THE SECONDARY SCHOOLS, TEACHING TEAMS, ARE ASSISTED BY A TEACHER AIDE. IN MANY JUNIOR AND SENIOR HIGH SCHOOLS, TELEVISION SUPPORTS AN EXTENDED SCHOOL DAY BY RELIEVING THE LOAD ON SCHOOL FACILITIES THAT OCCURS AT PEAK PERIODS WHEN THE TOTAL STUDENT BODY IS PRESENT. TELEVISION IS ALSO USED IN THE SCHOOL SYSTEM FOR INSERVICE TRAINING PROGRAMS, FACULTY MEETINGS, AND PRESENTATIONS OF GENERAL INFORMATION ABOUT SCHOOL PROGRAMS TO THE GENERAL PUBLIC. IMPROVEMENTS FOR THE FUTURE EFFECTIVENESS OF EDUCATIONAL TELEVISION INVOLVE PHYSICAL FACILITIES FOR TRANSMISSION AND UTILIZATION, MATERIALS FOR GREATER PROGRAM IMPACT, CURRICULUM PLANNING FOR WIDER ACCEPTANCE AND GREATER GOAL ACHIEVING EFFICIENCY, PERSONNEL IDENTIFICATION, AND TRAINING BOTH IN IN THE STUDIO AND UTILIZATION AREA. TELEVISION CAN PROVIDE COMMUNITY SERVICES IN THAT IT CAN RAISE THE COMMUNITY'S CULTURAL LEVEL BY PROVIDING QUALITY PROGRAMS IN THE ARTS, PROVIDE ACCURATE INFORMATION IN DEPTH, EXPAND ITS FUNCTION OF OFFERING CREDIT AND NONCREDIT TELECOURSES, AND OFFER PRESCHOOL PROGRAMS FOR YOUNGSTERS.
