Abstract

STATEMENT OF THE PROBLEM

If we agree that the fourth "R" of teaching lies in that subtle factor of human relations, it is clear that as schools and communities cooperate to analyze their needs and to evaluate their successes and failures can we ever hope to have desirable schools. If we agree that effective teaching involves action in harmony with the basic purposes of democracy, then again, the effective teacher and the citizens of the community become partners in planning and executing school programs. In this partnership both the teachers and citizens have certain differing and well 1 defined responsibilities, the citizens organize the school to meet certain needs of the community. They pay out their money to build buildings, buy equipment and pay the teachers, all of which is a definite proof that they are interested in their children but all must have a desirable relationship which should be based on democratic principles.

Community Composition: It is the opinion of the writer that education in its full meaning should not be confined to the traditional classroom procedures, nor should it be limited by the concepts learned in traditional textbooks. Education is a learning process, and in its complete scope must include all preparation and all learning for the full and harmonious development of an entire community school relationship.
