Educational Television in Maine.
Maine has had educational television (ETV) for about 12 years. ETV has been successful in putting on public service programming, despite the legislature's suspicions of this type of programming. The fact that ETV has not had more widespread success in instructional television for the state's classrooms may partly depend on the state legislature's stingy appropriations for this purpose. The author, himself a legislator, hopes that more can be done with ETV and cable television, but he is concerned that we do not really know how to use the "monster" known as television. Attached are Maine legislative acts pertaining to public broadcasting. (JK)
