The Appalachian Education Satellite Project (AESP) was conceptualized in 1973 (1) to develop courses in reading and career-Education instruction for reachers in the Appalachian region, and (2) to determine the feasibility of conducting such courses over a large geographical area via communications satellites. To assist in the initial planning for the project, data were gathered on the various localities that would be involved in the project. Included in the data were: (1) demographic characteristics, (2) economic conditions, (3) educational characteristics, (4) the nature and scope of existing career-education programs in the region, (5) a listing of standardized tests used in the region, and (6) universities in the region that could offer graduate credit for AESP courses. An analysis of the data suggests that there is not a homogeneous Appalachian population to which a product can easily be shaped. (Author/DGC)
