Hilliard, Robert L.
The establishment of the Corporation for Public Broadcasting makes possible vast improvements in the educational radio and television system in this country. The two crucial areas for communication are international communication and urban communication. In the urban ghettoes especially, old-fashioned education has left children frustrated and cut off from the world. Yet these children can still be reached by aural and visual means and thus television and radio have great potential. It is essential, however, that television or radio projects not concentrate on the conventional information-education approach, but on motivation, self-understanding, and ego-building identification with the child's background and immediate self. To begin to provide for the crucial communication needs of this country, then, it is essential that we establish a Communications University with the highest academic standards to train professionals and researchers.
