Abstract or Summary
  • Purpose In modern American society, educational television (ETV) plays an increasingly substantial role in the daily out-of-classroom education of the American youth and the decision to utilize youth based ETV is often in the hands of parents. However, many parents are unaware of the potential risks associated with early childhood exposure to television. The purpose of this study is to conduct a literature review of studies regarding these risks and propose an alternative rating policy. Methods The general approach of this project will follow the method of a policy challenge and reform framework. First, a survey study of the most current and relevant research literature regarding the effect of youth based educational television and the policies involved in its promotion was conducted. The second step of this project was to formulate a policy framework on the topic and utilize this as a means of challenging the status quo and promoting policy reform. Major Findings and Substantive Conclusions Early childhood exposure to television was found to pose a considerable potential risk to cognitive development and this study found that a proposal to amend the FCC rating system to reflect these concerns is warranted.
