CHAPTER 310 - STATE OF DELAWARE EXECUTIVE DEPARTMENT PROCLAMATION

Public education is a vast cooperative enterprise of society and was established in this country of ours to safeguard and maintain the democratic ideals upon which American society was founded. Its effectiveness in achieving the objectives set up by this society depends upon the nature of relationship and the degree of cooperation between the school and the public. In order to maintain a close relationship 'and to improve the degree of cooperation certain definite responsibilities must devolve upon educational leadership.

Believing the future welfare of American democracy is dependent upon the present welfare of American schools, I call upon interested citizens-of Delaware, especially school officials and parent teacher organizations, to plan programs for the observance of
