"The State of the Art" is a bibliographical essay current to 1975 consisting of 300 items relating to home-school-community relations. This literature was examined in order to (1) provide a conceptual framework for home-school-community relations, (2) develop a classification scheme for existing theory and practice, and (3) suggest further research in home-school-community relations. The literature of home-school-community relations suggests three distinct conceptual classifications: (1) home-school-community relations as an administrative function, (2) home-school-community relations as public participation, and (3) home-school-community relations as a political process. Each of these typologies is described in terms of objectives, programs and activities, underlying theoretical foundations, and the results of related research. The literature review concludes with a set of implications for model building, research, the improvement of home-school-community relations programs and practices, and the development of teacher/administrator training programs for home-school-community relations.
