dc.description.abstractThis study investigated the use of an electronic communication system when used with programmed curricular material in an attempt to enrich the instructional program of selected secondary schools of East Central Texas. The investigation focused upon the curricular area of related mathematics. The rationale of the study was presented, which related to the assessment and specific determination of needs for schools within a broad twenty-two county area. The subsequent narrowing of this area to nine counties and fifteen secondary schools was described. A historical background of the provisions of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act of 1965 was presented. This enabled school districts to participate in educational programs of the previously mentioned federal legislation. The description of the establishment of the CATE Center, as an operational ESEA Title III project was given. Subsequent staffing and primary purpose was given. Because this center was authorized to develop and test promising new methods of increasing learning opportunities for school children, this study has focused upon a communication system and programmed material as an instructional method. A comprehensive discussion was presented relating to the selection and operation of the electronic communication system. A description of the components of the system and cost analysis were given.en
