Another public interest group is the commission of laymen or educators which is appointed to study an educational problem and to make recommendations.
Generally these commissions work earnestly to represent the interest of the entire society, as they conceive it.
Nevertheless, their conclusions and recommendations cannot please everybody, and they often represent a particular economic or political point of view.
For instance, there have been two Presidential Commissions on higher education since World War 2.
President Truman's Commission on Higher Education tended to take a liberal, expansionist position, while President Eisenhower's Committee on Education Beyond the High School was slightly more conservative.
Both Commissions consisted of upper-middle- and upper-class people, who attempted to act in the public interest.
