Television and Schooling: Displacement and Distraction Hypotheses.
Roberts, Donald F.; And Others
Australian Journal of Education, v37 n2 p198-211 Aug 1993
Research on two hypotheses regarding television's possible negative effect on children's academic achievement is reviewed. A lack of support is found for the displacement hypothesis (time spent with television is taken away from more academically beneficial activities) and limited support for the distraction hypothesis (exposure to television engenders an intolerance for the pace of schooling).
