Public Relations for Rural and Village Teachers. Bulletin, 1946, No. 17
US Office of Education, Federal Security Agency
There is wide agreement among educational leaders that as a group the rural schools are still the "mired wheel" of American education. Rural communities have never been in greater need of trained educational leaders than at the present time. Teachers are needed who are trained to serve rural youth, to help solve farm problems, and to enrich rural life. Several years ago, the School Public Relations Association asked prominent educators throughout the country to identify the greatest need in school publication relations today. Respondents asked for help for the village and rural teacher, that is, help in the important job of interpreting the program, the needs, and the accomplishments of these schools to the citizenry. The Association sought the assistance of the U. S. Office of Education in the preparation of a practical answer. This bulletin, which discusses ways and means whereby rural school teachers can most effectively interpret the school to the people and make the general public a partner in the community's educational program, is the result. The following are included: (1) Foreword (John W. Studebaker); (2) By Way of Introduction (Arthur H. Rice); (3) So You Are the Teacher (W. H. Gaumnits); (4) Do You Know Your Community? (William McKinley Robinson); (5) How Do You Rate? (Minier Brown); (6) Your School--Does It Serve the People? (Marvin S. Pittman); (7) How Do You Work with Community Leaders? (B. I. Griffith); (8) Your Preparation and Growth in College and After (M. L. Smith); and (7) It All Adds Up to Public Relations (Otis A. Crosby). (Contains 9 footnotes.)
