Educational television has made great strides in the five years which have elapsed since the Federal Communications Commission set aside television channels for the exclusive use of education. Such stations are located in 29 communities of the United States, representing large cities, university centers and, in several instances, serving entire States through multiple stations or multiple studios. The investment in educational television now totals over fifty million dollars. Following a Foreword and Introduction, the following parts are included: (1) What is being done in educational television; (2) What can be done with educational television for adults; (3) The enrichment program for schools; (4) How a community can plan for educational television; (5) How a TV station can develop essential services; and (6) Exploring the practicability of direct teaching by television. The following are appended: (1) Educational television stations; (2) Non-commercial education television assignments; (3) New books on education television; (4) Publications of Office of Education, Radio-Television and Visual Education; (5) Organizations of Joint Council on educational television; (6) Foundations making grants to educational television; (7) Closed-circuit educational television; (8) Armed forces television stations; (9) Typical educational TV schedules; (10) Statewide networks of educational stations; and (11) Roll call of colleges by States.
