The Center for Educational Television.
Center for Educational Television, Inc., Manila (Philippines).
Although 26% of the Philippine national budget is spent on education, serious problems still exist. To update and revitalize the curriculum, to bring efficient teaching to isolated classrooms, and to make available modern audiovisual aids the Center for Educational Television on the campus of Ateneo de Manila University in Quezon City broadcasts telelessons for 6 hours a day, 5 days a week, 10 months of the year, to 30,000 Philippine students in 112 schools. The Center supplies training, programing transmission, production, publications, and school coordination services. Three systems of broadcast are used--2500-megahertz, closed-circuit, and open broadcast. The Center plans to establish an instructional television service and, later, a national media service. Other plans include extending coverage to the provinces, a telecourse library, and a tape duplication service. In order to provide the additional service, the Center will buy more equipment, train more personnel and erect a new production service building. (JY)
