Regents Statement in Rebuttal to LCER Program Audit of March 1, 1973 "Educational Television in New York State".
State Univ. of New York, Albany. Office of the Regents.
A rebuttal is offered to the criticisms made of the State Education Department (SED) and its Board of Regents in a program audit of the Legislative Commission on Expenditure Review (LCER). Comments of four major types are made. First, the Regents contend that the LCER report ignored many of the SED's activities in the area of instructional fixed service television, cable television, and satellite communication. Second, the Board denies the accusation that the State Education Department's programs are of poor technical quality and weak in content, and offers evidence to the contrary. Thirdly, the charge that the SED's supervision of local station operations has been minimal is countered with evidence which indicates that the Department has operated to the limits of its actual authority and resources. Finally, the Board denies the claim that there has been lack of statewide coordination of planning for educational television, citing its plans for total state support of the instructional television programing of the state's eight open circuit stations.
