Human Relations: Current Trends in School Policies and Programs.
National School Public Relations Association, Washington, DC.
This report explores some of the promising steps school districts across the nation are taking to encourage greater understanding in human relations. "Human relations" in schools is an attempt to change attitudes and to build foundations of mutual respect and understanding among students, staff members, and the community. Race relations is only part of the broader concept of human relations. This report looks at such components as employment practices, staff training, curriculum, student activities, school-community relations, federally funded projects, and other attempts schools are making to further human relations. In addition to having a common objective, most of the school human relations programs which reported in a nationwide survey seemed to share a common awareness of the need to appreciate differences, as well as similarities among people in order to build good human relations.
