The Image of Education in Primetime Network Television Series 1948-1988.
Mayerle, Judine; Rarick, David
Journal of Broadcasting and Electronic Media, v33 n2 p139-57 Spr 1989
Analysis of education-centered television series over 40 years found they portray less diverse settings, activities, and roles than actually exist; dedicated teachers work with interested students in urban settings and often have conflicts with cranky or inept administrators; White males predominate in most occupational roles; and non-traditional educators, family life, and educational problems are common themes.
