The Federal Role in Funding Children's Television Programming. Volume 1: Final Report.
Mielke, Keith W.; And Others
The United States Office of Education (USOE) policy in funding purposive television programing for children was investigated. Information and policy recommendations were gathered from existing sources in the general literature, USOE file materials, 10 single-topic commissioned papers, a 10-member advisory board, a Federal advisory group, and interviews. Over 90 interviews were conducted in six locations, including Washington, D.C., with personnel directly involved in or knowledgeable about the dispensing or utilization of Federal dollars in support of children's television programing. This final report provides a descriptive map of the various components essential to an integrated system of broadcasting; gives a side-by-side comparison of USOE's two major investments in children's programing (Children's Television Workshop and series and spot announcements funded under the Emergency School Aid Act); and summarizes major policy issues, alternatives, and recommendations.
