PUBLIC TELEVISION AND PUBLIC AFFAIRS EDUCATION. PREPARED FOR THE TASK FORCE ON INNOVATION IN PUBLIC AFFAIRS EDUCATION.
JOHNSON, EUGENE I.
THE CARNEGIE COMMISSION ON EDUCATIONAL TELEVISION PROPOSAL FOR PUBLIC TELEVISION IS EXAMINED TO DETERMINE WHAT STEPS MIGHT BE TAKEN TO DEVELOP MOST FULLY ITS POTENTIAL FOR PUBLIC TELEVISION. IT IS ASSERTED THAT THE FRAMERS OF THE ORIGINAL PROPOSAL HAVE NOT PROPERLY UNDERSTOOD THE RELATIONSHIP BETWEEN TELEVISION BROADCASTS AND THE INFORMAL CONTINUING EDUCATION OF ADULTS, AND THAT, AS IT RELATES TO OR ATTEMPTS TO USE BROADCASTS ORIGINATING WITH PUBLIC TELEVISION, PUBLIC AFFAIRS EDUCATION WOULD CONSIST OF SCATTERED, INDIVIDUAL, UNCOORDINATED RESPONSES WITH UNPREDICATABLE DEGREES OF EFFECTIVENESS. ACCORDINGLY, PERTINENT ISSUES IN THE COORDINATION OF EDUCATIONAL ACTIVITIES ARE EXPLORED--AREAS OF OVERLAP BETWEEN PUBLIC AFFAIRS EDUCATIONAL AND PUBLIC TELEVISION, THE INCORPORATION OF TELECASTS INTO THE PROCESS OF INFORMAL CONTINUING EDUCATION, MEANS OF LINKING THE ACTIVITIES AND RESOURCES OF PUBLIC TELEVISION, EDUCATIONAL INSTITUTIONS, AND NONPROFIT AGENCIES ENGAGED IN PUBLIC AFFAIRS EDUCATION, THE PROBLEM OF MEASURING AND ADEQUATELY SERVING SPECIFIC AUDIENCES, THE USE OF LONG RANGE ISSUES AND TOPICS OF CONCERN IN CURRICULUM PLANNING, AND THE BALANCING OF NATIONAL, REGIONAL, AND LOCAL NEEDS AND INTERESTS.
