Public Relations for Student Councils. New Directions for Student Councils, Number 13.
Dexter, Robert G.
As in the past, education has no choice but to put its best foot forward. There is tremendous competition for the community's attention, sympathy, and funds, and if education is to get its fair share of all of these, the public must be made aware of the schools' vitally important contributions to the nation's future. A forceful student council can assume an influential role in this process of community enlightenment. An honest, forthright, aggressive student council public relations program might well serve to correct any distortion that may exist in the community's view of student activities. The authors of this booklet urge all council advisors and members to follow suggested routes to better public relations. The booklet is written in a manner deliberately calculated to be of practical value in helping the student council face its distinctive public relations difficulties. (Author/PC)
