Why the Public Distrusts Professional Educators.
Language Arts, v64 n4 p397-401 Apr 1987
Argues that the public distrusts the educational system because it feels the system resists evaluation, has fuzzy objectives, is awash in theory, is against research, ignores the costs to the public, and is preoccupied with political concerns. Suggests that communication between parents, teachers, and the public may help change these views. (SRT)
