EDUCATIONAL TELEVISION AND THE IDENTIFICATION OF COMMUNITY EDUCATIONAL NEEDS.
BLAIR, JOSEPH SKILES, JR.
A STUDY WAS MADE TO DETERMINE TO WHAT EXTENT EDUCATIONAL TELEVISION STATIONS SERVED THEIR COMMUNITY EDUCATION NEEDS, AND WHAT METHODS WERE USED TO IDENTIFY THE NEEDS. TELEVISION STATIONS AND COMMUNITY GROUPS IN SIX CITIES WERE STUDIED AND QUESTIONNAIRES MAILED TO 48 ADDITIONAL TELEVISION STATIONS. IT WAS FOUND THAT FEW STATIONS HAD A SYSTEMATIC, ORGANIZED, CONTINUOUS PLAN FOR IDENTIFYING COMMUNITY NEEDS, ALTHOUGH THEY INDICATED AN INTEREST IN SERVING THE COMMUNITY. VARIOUS METHODS EMPLOYED BY DIFFERENT STATIONS TO IDENTIFY NEEDS INCLUDED STAFF DISCUSSION, SUGGESTIONS FROM SCHOOL AND COLLEGE PERSONNEL, AND IDEAS FROM VIEWERS AND COMMUNITY ADVISORY GROUPS. IT WAS CONCLUDED THAT THE FEDERAL COMMUNICATIONS COMMISSION'S PLAN OF PROVIDING OPPORTUNITIES FOR CONTINUED LEARNING BY ADULTS THROUGH EDUCATIONAL TELEVISION HAD BEEN FULLY REALIZED. EMPHASIS HAS BEEN ON IN-SCHOOL INSTRUCTIONAL TELEVISION. VERY FEW EDUCATIONAL STATIONS HAVE DEVISED A SYSTEMATIC, ORGANIZED AND CONTINUOUS PLAN FOR DISCOVERING AND IDENTIFYING CHANGING COMMUNITY EDUCATIONAL NEEDS. THIS PH.D.
