NEW DIRECTIONS IN SCHOOL-COMMUNITY RELATIONS.
MCCLUSKY, HOWARD
THE SCHOOL SHOULD ASSUME GREATER RESPONSIBILITY AS AN AGENCY OF SOCIETY FOR CHILD WELFARE. WHEN THE CHILD'S WELFARE IS THREATENED BY NEIGHBORHOOD CIRCUMSTANCES, THE SCHOOL SHOULD INTERVENE. THE COMMUNITY SHOULD INVEST MORE MONEY IN EXISTING SCHOOL FACILITIES TO TRANSFORM THE SCHOOLS INTO YEAR-ROUND COMMUNITY CENTERS CAPABLE OF PROVIDING A POSITIVE ORGANIZING FORCE IN THE NEIGHBORHOOD. TEACHERS AND ADMINISTRATORS SHOULD BE A PART OF THE COMMUNITY THEY SERVE. EMPHASIS SHOULD BE PLACED ON FRIENDLY INTERACTION BETWEEN SCHOOL STAFF, PUPILS, AND PARENTS. SCHOOLS SHOULD KEEP A CONTINUAL RECORD OF NEIGHBORHOOD TRENDS. THE SCHOOL SHOULD PROVIDE A CURRICULUM DESIGNED FOR THE BACKGROUND OF BOTH THE PUPIL AND HIS PARENTS. THE SCHOOL BUILDING SHOULD BE A PLACE TO WHICH PEOPLE IN THE NEIGHBORHOOD MAY TURN FOR LEADERSHIP AND GUIDANCE.
