A pilot television program with a homework hot line for students is expected to be launched early next year over the city's cable system, a Lakewood spokesman said.
Details are being developed for the program, which will allow Lakewood youths to get help on homework from volunteer teachers and some college students, said Don Waldie, public information officer.
The program, to air from 3 to 5 p.m. Monday through Thursday, probably will start in late January. Students will be able to dial a number and get help on problems.
Some of the problems, the majority of which are expected to be in math, will be solved on the air, but most will be solved off camera, Waldie said.
If the program is successful, it will be offered during the entire school year, beginning in September, he said.
Lakewood Cable Television serves about 11,000 homes in the city, but homework assistance will be available to everyone who calls.
