A local educational television station produced and showed 16 programs focusing on learning and behavior problems of elementary-school-age children. The series was designed by a hospital planning committee to provide mental health information to school personnel and the public. The program format consisted of group discussions interspersed with film clips illustrating particular types of behavior. The viewers, educators enrolled through a teacher's college and subscribers to the educational channel, evaluated the series.
