Communications and the Urban Crisis: Doing Our Own Thing.
Hilliard, Robert L.
The urban crisis has sparked two primary needs: 1) orienting formal education to the aural-visual needs and psychological set of the child, rather than to the outmoded administrative ease of the teacher; and 2) educating the majority society to the needs and problems of minority racial groups. Two efforts to meet the first problem are use of media and audiovisual aids and also proposals to reorganize the school system. An additional help would be the establishment of a communications university which would offer training in all fields needing communications expertise. In order to solve the second problem, whites must help blacks help themselves, rather than thinking that whites can solve black problems on their own. Several examples of whites giving blacks leeway to solve their problems are discussed here. Projects combining efforts of government, industry, education, and the community are most likely to solve the urban crisis. (JK)
