Abstract: There is a general need for teachers to know what people of the community expect of them. The term community, as used here, includes parents, citizens, taxpayers, and all people who live within the boundary lines of the community itself—those people, in fact, whose support helps to make a good school system. Bowsher says: Public opinion in a community will determine whether that community will have a good school or a poor one. Any community can have the type of school system which it desires and is willing to support. The community has a definite obligation in providing educational opportunity for its children, and the personnel of the school system has a definite obligation to its community.1 Inasmuch as the school needs the support of this vast group of people, teachers certainly cannot be insensitive to its wishes. It is also needless to say teachers cannot comply with standards of a community unless they know what the standards are.
