Nationwide Survey of School Superintendents on Future Utilization of the Instructional Television Fixed Service.
Feinberg, Barry M.
A nationwide survey was conducted for the Corporation for Public Broadcasting to determine school superintendents' planned use and implementation of Instructional Television Fixed Service (ITFS). Two hundred and fifty superintendants from 310 randomly-selected school districts with over 6,000 enrolled pupils responded to a postal card questionnaire. Data was also collected on size of district enrollment and current usage of in-class instructional television. Results showed that regardless of school district size, most school superintendents do not plan to use ITFS in the near future because funds are not available or because present in-class television systems are satisfactory. Among the minority of superintendents who will operationalize ITFS, most plan to do so within the next year. (Author/KP)
