The purpose of this study was to investigate the value of and need for Channel One in the curriculum. A written survey instrument was distributed to each teacher in five high schools, and 145 teachers responded.
The results of the survey indicate that educators believe the program teaches current events with accuracy, covering the most important issues, and a majority of teachers believe that the school should continue to show the program. A majority of educators see Channel One News as a stand-alone program, and most are not using the program to teach anything.
As a result, schools receiving the broadcast should set up teaching guidelines to be followed by all educators. Further study, on a larger scale, should be conducted to verify the results of this survey and to determine if students are actually learning the lessons that the Channel One Network is attempting to teach.
