Channel One Revisited: Prospective Teachers and the Role of American Higher Education
Angulo, A. J.; Green, Susan K.
Innovative Higher Education, v32 n2 p105-112 Aug 2007
This study examined perceptions of college of education students and their experiences with Channel One, a privately-owned news service used in public education. Given that about one-third of middle and high schoolers in the US view the broadcast every school day, the authors surveyed 172 freshmen to discern their views and attitudes toward Channel One programming and commercials and the role colleges and universities might play in relation to this media service. While most studies on Channel One have been conducted from a K-12 point of view, the goal of this study was to reconsider the topic from the perspective of prospective teachers and post-secondary education.
