Abstract: Given the constraints of the present education system in Zambia; that is, lack of financial resources, shortage of skilled manpower and technical facilities, this study proposes that a system of expanded educational broadcasting services applied to these problems might bring about some alleviation of them. The study deals with the design of a framework for the development of expanded educational broadcasting services in the formal secondary education system of Zambia and is a selective exercise in the planning and utilization of educational broadcasting. It is designed in response to the need to plan and develop a systems of education that is more responsive to increasing numbers of students and to provide them with more opportunities for learning than the present systems. A draft of the plan was developed from a review of literature relevant to the Zambian situation from a local as well as other sources concerned with education in developing countries. Data were also gathered from secondary school teachers and educational administrators through the use of questionnaires. The plan was reviewed by a panel of six persons expert in the field of education in Zambia; the criteria for their selection were that they are in leadership positions. After they had read the plan, they were required to answer the questionnaire which accompanied the plan. The feedback obtained from the two questionnaires was used to revise the plan. Recommendations to the Government of Zambia based on the plan were considered from the point of view of appropriateness to the local situation, feasibility, implementation, desirability and efficiency. The final plan represented a comprehensive design which collected, analysed, and prepared information, data and recommendations which could assist the Government of Zambia in putting into effect the development of expanded educational broadcasting services for the formal education system in the country.
