Educational Television in New York State; Program Audit 3.1.73.
Roos, David E.; And Others
The development, organization, operation, programing and financing of educational television (ETV) in New York State (NYS) are reviewed. Legislative intent and authorization for ETV--which includes both public television (PTV), open to the general public, and instructional television (ITV), usually designed for specific classroom instructional purposes--are discussed, and television's (TV) effectiveness in terms of educational purposes and potentials is evaluated. The report begins with a general review of ETV in NYS and then investigates the effectiveness, material sources, logistical services and productivity of classroom TV at the primary and secondary levels. Chapter III analyzes classroom TV in the State University, including its development, administration, potential utilization, cost-effectiveness and reasons for its current underutilization. PTV in the state is surveyed, with attention devoted to its instructional services, public programing, program production services and statewide network. Chapter V studies PTV finances, especially PTV station expenses, and state and other sources of funding and the report concludes with an overview and look at the future of ETV, including both its ITV and PTV components. Eleven appendixes provide additional detailed data. (PB)
