Report on the Wisconsin School of the Air Radio Survey.
Hegemann, Dolores A.
In response to budget pressures, and the resulting questioning about the usefulness of educational radio now that television is generally available, the Wisconsin School of the Air--Radio surveyed Wisconsin elementary schools to determine how much their programing was in fact being used. The findings of the survey indicated that educational radio is still being heavily utilized by Wisconsin schools. The use of educational television does receive somewhat greater encouragement from school administrators, leading some schools which have both radio and television facilities to use only the television, but this difference is not great. The major problems standing in the way of greater use of educational radio in Wisconsin have been technical ones, particularly lack of equipment and poor AM reception. (RH)
