A Challenging Picture: The Status of ITV Utilization in Secondary Schools.
The Agency for Instructional Television (AIT) solicited information from 28 individuals having responsibilities in various local, regional, and state instructional television organizations and agencies in the United States and Canada. AIT asked each individual to respond to three sets of questions on (1) the current status of secondary school television in the respondent's area, (2) a statement of the respondent's philosophy regarding television use in the secondary schools, and (3) examples of significant successes or failures in the respondent's area. Responses of agencies indicate that secondary school television is underused, underfinanaced, and unexciting. Appendices include the letter requesting responses to the survey questions, and names of the 22 agency representatives responding to the survey. While the sampling procedures are not scientific, the data seem representative, based on AIT's knowledge of the field and active agencies. This initial probe is designed as a basis for further analysis and in-depth case studies. (Author/CMV)
