Summary

A survey of the uses of instructional telelvision (ITV) in elementary and secondary schools throughout the United States was undertaken by the Corporation for Public Broadcasting and the National Center for Education Statistics. Teachers, principals, and superintendents were queried in the areas of availability, commitment, actual use, and attitudes. A small sample of students was surveyed about actual use. The final sampling was representative of approximately 12,000 school districts; 90,000 school buildings; 2,275,000 classrooms; and 46,000,000 students. Results of the survey showed that approximately one out of three teachers used television regularly in 1976-77; approximately 15 million students received a regular portion of their instruction via television; most teachers who used television for instruction integrated it with other classroom activities; an estimated 73 to 100 million dollars was spent on ITV by school districts in 1976-77; 64% of school superintendents expected school district expenditures for ITV to increase or remain the same through 1980; only 17% of all teachers had been trained to use ITV; and teachers who had instructional television available most often cited their local public television station as a major source of ITV programing.
