STUDIES IN THE UTILIZATION OF TELEVISION IN THE SCHOOLS, A FURTHER ANALYSIS OF DATA COLLECTED FOR THE NEW YORK STATE REGENTS EDUCATIONAL TELEVISION PROJECT.
HENSHAW, STANLEY; JAFFE, ABRAM
ADDITIONAL ANALYSES OF DATA COLLECTED IN AN EARLIER STUDY CONCERNING A 4-YEAR HISTORY OF EDUCATIONAL TELEVISION IN DIVERSE SCHOOL SYSTEMS WITHIN 3 STATES IS REPORTED. THE RESULTS HAVE BEEN PUBLISHED IN THE MONOGRAPH "UTILIZATION OF THE REGENTS EDUCATIONAL TELEVISION BROADCAST PROGRAMS." THE PRESENT REPORT IS IN TWO SECTIONS--(1) SOME STRUCTURAL ASPECTS OF TELEVISION IN ELEMENTARY SCHOOLS, AND (2) THE CLASSROOM USE OF TELEVISION ON ELEMENTARY SCHOOLS IN THE NEW YORK AREA IN RELATION TO CERTAIN SOCIAL, ECONOMIC, AND DEMOGRAPHIC ATTRIBUTES OF SCHOOL DISTRICTS. IN SECTION 1, THE MAJOR FINDING REPORTED WAS THAT THE PRESENCE OR ABSENCE OF A TELEVISION COORDINATOR DOES NOT MAKE ANY CONSISTENT DIFFERENCE IN THE UTILIZATION OF OR SATISFACTION WITH CLASSROOM TELEVISION. IN SECTION 2, THE MAJOR FINDINGS REPORTED WERE--(1) THE RATIO OF TV SETS TO TEACHERS AND PUPILS WAS HIGHLY RELATED TO THE NUMBER OF PROGRAMS REGULARLY VIEWED, (2) THE NUMBER OF SETS POSSESSED BY A SCHOOL WAS RELATED TO THE WEALTH OF THE COMMUNITY, AND (3) THE USE OF TV SETS WAS NOT BEING INCORPORATED TO OVERCOME TEACHER SHORTAGES.
