The School Sociologist: A New Role for the American Public School.
The author sketches out an argument for the institutionalization of a new role within the public school system, namely, that of school sociologist. Such a person would address himself to the problems which schools face in regard to various groups or communities which they must deal with both within and without the school's walls. Three major areas are covered: (1) the ways in which social sociology is useful to schools and school personnel; (2) the nature of the school sociologist's role and its implementation; and (3) the kind of training such a person should have. The author concludes that the school sociologist would bring to the school a perspective which will help it to work more effectively in a time of great social unrest, rapid change, and increasing demands for more and better education.
