Secondary School Applications of an Education Satellite.
Truxal, John G.
An education satellite offers the technology to enhance the quality, control the cost, and expand the available opportunities of secondary school education. The satellite is the vehicle through which change can be effected in the secondary school system, particularly to bring quality education to the segments of the population now in sparsely populated or economically disadvantaged areas and to bring into the school system a greatly improved awareness of all phases of today's culture and science. The education satellite will have a strong impact on teacher training, the core curriculum of conventional subjects, the education of special groups of students (gifted, handicapped, and adults), and the responsiveness of pre-college education to the changing needs of a technological society. A selected bibliography is included. (Author)
