Television and Children: Priorities for Research.
Ford Foundation, New York, NY.
Thoughtful use of past research experience to guide future study and action was the basis for a conference at Reston, Virginia in November 1975 to propose priorities for new research on television and children. The conference had two objectives: (1) to assemble as broad a range of people as possible to think through the many directions future research might take and to produce from these possibilities an ordered set of guidelines for the benefit of researchers and sponsors of research; and (2) to frame the guidelines that those responsible for formulating television policies, such as government agencies, the broadcasting and advertising industries, educational institutions, and citizen groups, might be aided by social science research. This publication reported on the conference and a statement of the recommendations made by the participants. (HAB)
