THE NEEDS OF EDUCATION FOR TELEVISION CHANNEL ALLOCATIONS.
BRONSON, VERNON; AND OTHERS
THIS REPORT IS BASED ON A STUDY DESIGNED SPECIFICALLY TO BRING INTO FOCUS THE NATIONAL PICTURE OF TELEVISION FACILITIES FOR EDUCATION THAT WILL BE NEEDED DURING THE NEXT DECADE. THE SURVEY INCLUDED ALL THE LARGE SCHOOL SYSTEMS IN THE COUNTRY WITH ENROLLMENTS OF 12,000 OR MORE, A NUMBER OF THE SMALLER SYSTEMS, AND ALL THE STATE DEPARTMENTS OF EDUCATION. THE FIRST PART OF THE SURVEY DETERMINED THE EXISTING NEEDS IN EDUCATION THAT COULD BE SATISFIED OR HELPED BY THE USE OF BROADCAST TELEVISION. THIS PORTION OF THE SURVEY WAS ALSO CONCERNED WITH THE NUMBER AND DISTRIBUTION OF CHANNELS WHICH WOULD BE REQUIRED TO MEET THESE NEEDS. THE SECOND PART OF THE SURVEY FOCUSED ON (1) ADEQUACY OF PRESENTLY RESERVED CHANNELS FOR HANDLING ESTABLISHED NEEDS, (2) CHANNELS AVAILABLE UNDER PRESENT RULES THAT COULD BE ADDED TO THE RESERVED LIST FOR A PRIMARY, NATIONWIDE SERVICE, AND (3) ADDITIONAL CHANNELS AVAILABLE TO PROVIDE MULTICHANNEL SERVICE. IN THE SURVEY BASIC AND MINIMUM NEEDS OF EDUCATION HAVE BEEN ESTABLISHED, AND A SCHEDULE OF TELEVISION CHANNEL ASSIGNMENTS PRODUCED TO PROVIDE FOR APPROXIMATELY 75 PERCENT OF THE NEEDS IN THE NEXT 10 TO 15 YEARS.
