Children's television in America is in a deplorable state of neglect

Children's television in America is in a deplorable state of neglect. Since the demise of Captain Kangaroo in the early '80s, there has been no regular weekday programming for children on the three major commercial networks, and very little on chronically underfunded Public TV. Yet as Edward Palmer points out in this illuminating volume, America could easily have the finest children's television in the world, for less than one cent per day for each of the nation's 42 million children. Why have we failed to provide quality programming for young viewers?

This newest book by Edward L. Palmer was released at a particularly appropriate time in the lengthy debate over children's programming on television. A long-awaited bill addressing broadcasters' responsibilities to children passed the House of Representatives in June 1988. The Senate push for a stronger bill was derailed in October with promises of hearings next year. Thus, although this bill was eventually killed by a pocket veto from President Reagan, the debate is not dead but will emerge as one of the priorities of the 101st Congress

This chapter outlines the child-socialization role of television in the US, the ways television has changed family interactions and affected the formation of children's attitudes about cultural/ethnic differences, perceptions, and issues. Parents' role in this process is closely examined. The content and effects of violent programming are examined along with comparable content and effects of prosocial and educational programming. Instructional television is traced through its early history and its current presence.
