A Comparative Study of School Board Policies and Administrative Procedures for the Years 1965 and 1970 for Dealing With Supplementary Free Materials in School Districts in Cities With Populations Over 100,000 in the United States.
DuVall, Charles R.
This document reports on a study of (1) differences in school board policies between 1965 and 1970 concerning the use of supplementary free materials and (2) the administrative procedures used to implement those policies. Supplementary free materials are defined as those materials provided by businesses and governmental agencies free of charge to the teacher or the school system, or at a cost that includes only postage. The study revealed that in 1970 fewer boards had policies for dealing with supplementary free materials, and that there has been a shift in responsibility for determining their acceptability away from the building principal to the individual teacher. The criteria most commonly used for determining acceptability of supplementary free materials were (1) relevance, (2) educational significance, and (3) freedom from objectionable advertising. (JF)
