EDUCATION AND PUBLIC UNDERSTANDING. SECOND EDITION. EXPLORATION SERIES IN EDUCATION.
MCCLOSKEY, GORDON
THE SECOND EDITION OF A 1959 STUDY EXAMINES THE IMPLICATIONS OF RECENT RESEARCH AND MODERN COMMUNICATION MEDIA FOR PROVIDING EDUCATORS WITH THE CAPACITY TO OBTAIN PUBLIC MORAL AND FINANCIAL SUPPORT FOR SCHOOLS. CITIZEN SUPPORT OF EDUCATION DEPENDS LARGELY ON THE AVAILABILITY AND DISCUSSION OF PERTINENT INFORMATION. BASED ON THE PRINCIPLE THAT CITIZENS HAVE A RIGHT TO BE INFORMED AND THE EVIDENCE THAT FREE PEOPLE AWARD THEIR SUPPORT TO MATTERS THEY UNDERSTAND AND VALUE, PROCEDURES ARE OUTLINED BY WHICH ADMINISTRATORS, TEACHERS, AND SCHOOL BOARDS CAN CREATE GENUINE PUBLIC UNDERSTANDING, INCLUDING WAYS OF ESTABLISHING EFFECTIVE WORKING RELATIONSHIPS WITH THE MEDIA OF NEWSPAPERS, TELEVISION, AND RADIO. VALUES AND LIMITATIONS OF SCHOOL PUBLICATIONS ARE ANALYZED AND PRODUCTION TECHNIQUES ARE SUMMARIZED. WHILE ADMINISTRATORS ARE PRIMARILY RESPONSIBLE FOR ACHIEVING PUBLIC UNDERSTANDING OF EDUCATION, TEACHERS PLAY A VITAL ROLE IN WORKING WITH PUPILS, PARENTS, ORGANIZATIONS, AND MASS MEDIA TO GAIN APPRECIATION OF THE FUNCTIONS AND VALUES OF SCHOOLING. IN THEIR RELATIONSHIP WITH THE SCHOOL SUPERINTENDENT, SCHOOL BOARD MEMBERS MAKE A SPECIAL CONTRIBUTION TO PUBLIC UNDERSTANDING. A CASE STUDY ILLUSTRATES HOW A SCHOOL ADMINISTRATOR IN A TYPICAL COMMUNITY CAN UTILIZE THE FACTS AND IDEAS PRESENTED IN THE STUDY.
