This paper describes the various parts of a new interactive classroom television system (ICTS) that is being used by partially sighted elementary school children. This ICTS permits children to view one of seven separately controlled TV screens and thereby be in continuous visual communication with their teacher, classmates, and classroom. Comments are made on the advantages of educating partially sighted children separately from normally sighted children.
