Mandell, Wallace (1969). Theorizing in a Participatory Democracy. Research directed toward providing information to be used to improve the social environment of the disadvantaged has been prejudiced by various concerns and power plays in funding agencies. These agencies have a mixture of motives and concerns, efficiency, surveillance, fund allocation, and adherence to national programs. On the other hand, community leaders want a redistribution of resources channeled to their constituents. Information gathering can be used as a delaying tactic to put off making such changes. The values and political philosophy of the researcher usually complement those of the administration and also affect his findings. More objective and thorough methodological approaches are argued for.

Frazier, P. Jean; Gaziano, Cecilie (1979). Robert Ezra Park's Theory of News, Public Opinion and Social Control. Journalism Monographs No. 64. This monograph reconstructs a theory of news, public opinion, and social control originally presented between 1904 and 1941 by Robert Ezra Park, a founder of the sociological study of mass communication and public opinion, and suggests that the theory is pertinent to contemporary journalists and scholars. Park's work is described as the basis of many ideas now popular in mass communication theory, including the news functions of surveillance, correlation, transmission, and entertainment; the conceptual scheme of agenda setting; the coorientational model that links the individual to a social system; and the techniques of precision and advocacy journalism. The sections of the monograph describe the relationship of Park's life to his theory, his theoretical framework and empirical methods, and the central elements in his theory.   [More]  Descriptors: Communication (Thought Transfer), Communications, Information Theory, Journalism

Howard, Eugene R.; Jenkins, John M. (1970). Improving Discipline in the Secondary School. A Catalogue of Alternatives to Repression. An Occasional Paper. The usual approach to improving discipline in the schools is the repressive approach — more rules, stricter enforcement, more efficient pupil surveillance, suspensions of privileges, or additional rules imposed by the board of education. School administrators, faced with increased public concern and lacking well-defined alternatives to such repressive measures, tend to accede to public pressure, thereby making matters worse. This paper is designed to serve the educator who wants to take positive rather than negative steps towards improving school discipline. The projects suggested here, taken together, should add up to a comprehensive effort to modify the learning environment. Three major pieces of this environment are considered here — the belief and value system of the school, the school's communications system, and the manner in which decisions are made within the institution. Significant changes in these important components of the institution should do much to remedy the causes of discipline problems.   [More]  Descriptors: Administrator Guides, Communication Problems, Decision Making, Discipline

Smyth, John (1989). Problematising Teaching through a "Critical" Perspective on Clinical Supervision. This paper takes as its starting point the well-known and extensively used process of clinical supervision and shows how what started over 30 years ago as a collaborative process has been harnessed into a sophisticated mechanism of teacher inspection and surveillance. It shows how this co-option has occurred historically through the progressive alignment of clinical supervision with the conservative educational reform movement in schools. It concludes by describing a "critical" perspective through which teachers might not only be able to restore the collaborative intent of clinical supervision, but in the process, enable teachers to regain more control over their teaching. Problematising teaching–creating a narrative text about that teaching and confronting the social, historical, and political agenda expressed in it–are all seen as precursors to the restoration and reclamation of teaching by teachers.
