Needed: A New Coalition for Public Affairs Education (A Review of the Literature).
Johnson, Eugene I.
A recent survey reveals frustration with our inability to institute social change. Public affairs education has not been effectively linked to the energies of those willing to study and take action, such as students. Barriers to such a linkage include institutional rigidities; autonomy and jealousy; limited financing; differing concepts of public affairs education; and lack of appropriate mechanisms for pooling resources, exchanging information, and inter-institutional projects at the State, local, and national levels. A national coalition of broadcasting stations and public affairs agencies and organizations is needed to effect change in public affairs education. (Author/RS)
