This document consists of four issues of the "Journal of Educational Relations" published quarterly during 1997, and devoted to promoting student achievement through positive school-home-community relationships. The first issue of this volume reprints papers originally presented at a 1967 conference cosponsored by Project Public Information and Stanford University regarding the proper account of public education. These include: "A Conference-Public Understanding of Education as a Field of Study-1967" (Richard Gray and Dean O'Brien); "Educators Do Not Communicate Well" (Floyd Christian); and "What about Teachers?" (Albert Grey). Articles in the second issue include: "Parent Advocates Can Improve Parent-Teacher Relations" (Patricia Lindauer and others); "What Do Parents Think about Education Reform?"; and "Organize to Seek Out a Variety of Contributors" (Michael Miller). Articles in the third issue include: "The Subversion of Citizenship Education" (David Schimmel) and "A Relationship Challenge for Educators" (Judith Cochran). Articles in the fourth issue include: "The Power of Positive Students" (Joe Amato) and "Foundations--A Source of Alternative Funding" (Phillip Messner and Michael Graham). Each issue also contains a teaching or administrative case study and response, book reviews, and a short summary of a research project related to educational public relations. A new feature is initiated in the fourth issue in which communicators and teachers share insights regarding improvements in school-community relations. (KB)
