A Cable TV Guide for Educators: Uses and Provisions. Second Edition.
The primary focus of this monograph is on how school districts might involve themselves in the process of drafting cable television ordinances and granting cable franchises. An introductory section surveys the history of cable television, its educational uses, two-way capabilities, the local origination rule, and the role of the Federal Communications Commission. A course of action for educators in the process of granting cable franchises is suggested. The municipal franchising process is described. Esentially educational provisions for inclusion in a cable ordinance are listed; general franchise provisions that have an indirect bearing on education are also described. Some of the variety of options available for cable franchise ownership are explored. An annotated bibliography is also provided. (JY)
