Get A Leg Up

I’m not sure how much of this media approach is taught in recreation schooling, but I sense it isn’t much. Considering the importance of public information in parks and recreation, it seems logical that a significant block of study and practice should be devoted to it. Maybe someone out there can enlighten me.

Like Ron, I yearn for a more tolerant and balanced world where common understanding can foster good relations among people. It isn’t an impossible dream. But maybe, in our own small way, we public administrators can use the media tools available to foster better understanding of what we do. Today, recreation … tomorrow, world peace.
