ETV Study, 1967.
Dade County Board of Public Instruction, Miami, FL.
The Dade County Board of Public Instruction directed a study of the effects of limiting the educational television services of WTHS and WSEC, and the possibility of using those services as a part-time teaching aid rather than a full-time educational process. A cumulative capital investment of $1,317,255 in television facilities provided 2,729 hours of instructional programing in 1966-67, broadcast to 137,516 pupils in 310 schools. Although the discontinuation of television would release $700,000 for other spending during the year, expensive revisions in personnel, curriculum, education, and financing would be necessary. Part-time operation of television might take the form of limitation to elementary, secondary, or community television, restriction of broadcasting to one channel, the telecasting of only previously produced videotape programs, or a combination of these alternatives. Instructional television problems are born of the system-wide problem of inadequate classroom space for large-group instruction, which inhibits flexibility in program scheduling and the development of centralized and decentralized television operations.
