Yep. We had it in my intermediate and high school. I liked it. Then again, I like watching the news.
17 yrs ago, 10 mos ago - Monday 7/12/04 - 1:24:37 PM EST (GMT-5)
Yes, and it really annoys me. Luckily, my homeroom this year had a broken TV, so I never saw it.
17 yrs ago, 10 mos ago - Monday 7/12/04 - 1:28:42 PM EST (GMT-5)
Oh yes, it is EVIL. It's a pathetic excuse for corporations to get ads to kids in SCHOOL for Christ's sake, there's no escaping them anymore at all. It disgusts me to no end.
17 yrs ago, 10 mos ago - Monday 7/12/04 - 1:29:25 PM EST (GMT-5)
^^Yeah, that too. They have like 4 minutes of commercials there.
17 yrs ago, 10 mos ago - Monday 7/12/04 - 1:29:32 PM EST (GMT-5)
nope, i've never heard of it, but my school was in canada.
17 yrs ago, 10 mos ago - Monday 7/12/04 - 1:31:07 PM EST (GMT-5)
It's been outlawed in most of Canada.
The only "value" it has is to vaguely associate places with terrorism.

We had it in my high school, waaay back in 1992 we got it, that was my sophomore year. I liked it because I thought Anderson Cooper was hot and, with video announcements, it was a half hour out of my morning to sit and do homework I should have done the night before.
17 yrs ago, 10 mos ago - Monday 7/12/04 - 6:02:29 PM EST (GMT-5)
I forgot about the commercials though! There were the same Snickers commercials every single day. It really was just to give companies the opportunity to target their most coveted demographic. But we got free cable and TVs in every room so it was sweet, a lot of teachers watched TV all day
17 yrs ago, 10 mos ago - Monday 7/12/04 - 6:03:52 PM EST (GMT-5)
Yes, it was horrible, they actually made it part of assignments.
17 yrs ago, 10 mos ago - Monday 7/12/04 - 6:06:42 PM EST (GMT-5)
We had a channel that the school ran, that was pretty sweet.
17 yrs ago, 10 mos ago - Monday 7/12/04 - 7:46:58 PM EST (GMT-5)
I don't think we did in middle school, and I know e didn't in high school.
17 yrs ago, 9 mos ago - Friday 8/6/04 - 2:54:19 PM EST (GMT-5)
yeah, but we never watched it.
17 yrs ago, 9 mos ago - Friday 8/6/04 - 2:55:39 PM EST (GMT-5)
Nope, must be a North American thing.
17 yrs ago, 9 mos ago - Friday 8/6/04 - 3:15:47 PM EST (GMT-5)
It's so stupid that people even want TVs in classrooms. Some of them act like no one has ever been able to teach without them.
17 yrs ago, 9 mos ago - Wednesday 8/18/04 - 9:37:15 AM EST (GMT-5)
we did not have it
17 yrs ago, 6 mos ago - Friday 10/29/04 - 8:15:11 PM EST (GMT-5)
Yes, I hate it.
17 yrs ago, 6 mos ago - Friday 10/29/04 - 8:19:33 PM EST (GMT-5)
This is the first time I've even heard of Channel One, so I suppose not.
17 yrs ago, 6 mos ago - Friday 10/29/04 - 8:21:30 PM EST (GMT-5)
yeah , i forgot all about it. it was horrible.
17 yrs ago, 5 mos ago - Saturday 12/4/04 - 5:58:15 PM EST (GMT-5)
yeh i did in middle school... everybody liked it bc they had a chance to catch up on homework... i dont think anybody ever really watched it
17 yrs ago, 5 mos ago - Saturday 12/4/04 - 6:03:42 PM EST (GMT-5)
I don't think we did. We did have daily news with kids from our school broadcasting from the library, I think.
17 yrs ago, 5 mos ago - Saturday 12/4/04 - 6:07:27 PM EST (GMT-5)
ew no. We had KHS-TV, our own TV program for the morning.
Who need some lameass Channel One?
We were updated on things that were important to us, like pep rallies and the latest scores of our team's football games.
17 yrs ago, 5 mos ago - Friday 12/17/04 - 8:14:40 AM EST (GMT-5)
We have it everyday--seventh period right after class.

Sometimes, the news is an okay tidbit.

And other times we don't even watch it because our teacher likes to work through it until the bell rings. So, I don't care about it anyway.

17 yrs ago, 5 mos ago - Saturday 12/18/04 - 10:58:18 PM EST (GMT-5)
Yes but I have band class the hour it airs so I never get to watch it
17 yrs ago, 5 mos ago - Saturday 12/18/04 - 11:01:48 PM EST (GMT-5)
My little sister has it at school. She always talks to me about what she "SAW ON CHANNEL ONE" that day. I think its great...I'm glad to see a thirteen-year-old actually interested in current events.
17 yrs ago, 5 mos ago - Thursday 12/23/04 - 10:09:32 AM EST (GMT-5)
yes, we had it in middle school and you had to watch it because at the end of the week you had a quiz on what was on it for the entire week.
