The Governor of American Samoa to the Secretary of the Interior for the fiscal year ended June 30th. 1972 Annual Report,
U.S. Government Printing Office, Washington, D.C.
The reassessment of the role of television has resulted in a new emphasis on quality of television instructions, rather than quantity. Accordingly, the number of instructional programs produced has been considerably reduced, while the amount of time and resources devoted to a television lesson has been nearly doubled.
Classroom teachers have been given more responsibility for implementing the instructional program. To accomplish this, pilot programs have been initiated to acquaint teachers with innovative approaches aimed at individualizing instruction. Television also has been used in increasing amounts for adult education, with expanded programming at night for the entire Samoan community.
