Assessment of the ESAA-TV Program: An Examination of Its Production, Distribution, and Financing. Executive Summary.
Nelson, Bernadette; And Others
The Emergency School Assistance Act Television Program (ESAA-TV) provides funds through grants and contracts for the production, duplication, promotion, and distribution of racially integrated children's programming. The programming is designed to help eliminate racial isolation, fear, and distrust and to provide compensatory education material. This study assessed the potential impact and effect of ESAA-TV by examining its management and administration, production, distribution, and financing. In general, it was found that ESAA-TV has been implemented in a manner congruent with legislative intent. The most serious challenges facing ESAA-TV administrators appear to be obtaining increased viewership and increased utilization in schools. Recommendations for future implementation are included.
