Synergetics, Inc., Washington, DC.
A docket search reviews selected educational telecommunications issues brought to the attention of the Federal Communications Commission (FCC). The docket search was part of an effort to develop a planning document for the establishment of a nationwide educational telecommunications system. Key policy-making proceedings were identified which dealt with educational television on UHF-TV, ITFS (Instructional Fixed Service Television), CATV (cable television), common carriers, and domestic satellites. For each docket a brief statement of the issue and a capsulized review of the position taken by each major participant in the proceedings is first presented; then a more detailed review describes the issues as seen by the FCC and the responses of the educational and other interests in a chronological order. Changes or modifications in position that occur are noted, and the rationale for each position are included, particularly as they relate to the positions of educational interests. The educational implications of the FCC decisions for each medium are summarized. (JY)
