This report is a summary of a variety of educational services offered by the Corporation for Public Broadcasting (CPB) supported television stations as reported in CPB's annual Station Activities Survey (1998). Highlights from the data include: 141 stations (80% of all CPB supported stations) provide educational services to elementary or secondary schools; the number of stations offering the "Ready to Learn" service on PBS increased by 77% from last year--this service now reaches over 52,000 schools; and half of all stations offer General Equivalency Degree (GED) programs, and 10% offer the program in Spanish, which impacts over 51,000 students. Five charts provide statistics, according to license type and budget size, on: grantees offering instructional programming to schools; number of school districts, buildings and teachers utilizing programming; grantees providing services to schools; and grantees offering GED programs.
