A great majority of schools in the United States are supported ty taxation. There exists a responsibility on their part for reporting their activities to the public. Inasmuch as interschool athletics is a part of education and because of the many phases in which the community is interested, public administrators may create situations to inform the public and gain the support that is needed. Too many people having the responsibility of informing the public of the importance of athletics have failed to do so. Thereby, causing unfavorable publicity as to the educational part that athletics play in today's school and democratic living.
The purpose of this study is to accomplish the following: To develop awareness of the importance of athletics in a democracy. To give to the public the infomation to which it is entitled about its athletic teams. To obtain financial support. To correct misunderstanding and inform the public of plans, policies and regulations.
