Dana, Joyce A.
Journal of School Public Relations, v25 n1 p8-21 Win 2004

Lessons for all schools can be learned from charter school efforts to engage their public effectively. This article presents some of the lessons learned, provides a pragmatic two-dimension communication model that can be useful, and identifies steps to take to implement an effective public engagement program.
