Public Broadcasting and Education; A Report to the Corporation for Public Broadcasting from the Advisory Council of National Organizations.
Corporation for Public Broadcasting, Washington, DC.
In February 1974 the Corporation for Public Broadcasting (CPB) commissioned a study regarding the role of the Corporation in the relationship between public broadcasting and education. Four task forces were formed to consider the areas of early childhood education, elementary-secondary education and teacher education, post-secondary formal education, and adult education. The bulk of the report is concerned with a discussion of the recommendations, which are that the CPB should (1) intensify its efforts to bridge the chasm between broadcasting and education; (2) recognize and support the principle of cultural pluralism; (3) undertake activities to assist professional development of the educators and broadcasters engaged in educational broadcasting; (4) undertake promptly certain instructional programing activities; (5) assure attention to the strategies, materials and other services which are critical to effective use of educational programing; (6) actively develop the educational programing applications of related technologies; (7) assure an effective program of research, evaluation and demonstration; (8) facilitate the development of more flexible patterns of rights clearance; (9) encourage the development of the skills of aural/visual literacy and critical listening/viewing; (10) recognize and support effective activities for promotion and community outreach; (11) move at once to act upon these considerations.
