THE EAST ORANGE EDUCATION PLAZA.
SEITZER, ROBERT H.
THE EAST ORANGE, NEW JERSEY, SCHOOL BOARD MADE A PROPOSAL FOR AN EAST ORANGE EDUCATION PLAZA TO PROVIDE SUPERIOR EDUCATIONAL OPPORTUNITIES FOR ALL CHILDREN FROM KINDERGARTEN THROUGH JUNIOR COLLEGE. TO BE CONSTRUCTED IN AT LEAST SEVEN STAGES, THE PLAZA WOULD FURNISH YEAR-ROUND EDUCATION AND WOULD BECOME A CULTURAL, RECREATIONAL, AND ENRICHMENT CENTER FOR THE WHOLE COMMUNITY. ALL SCHOOL CHILDREN IN THE CITY WOULD BE BROUGHT TO A CENTRAL LOCATION WHERE LARGE BUILDINGS HOUSING 3,000 OR MORE PUPILS WOULD BE ORGANIZED AS MANY SMALL SCHOOLS. SPECIALIZED TEACHERS, SPECIAL RESOURCES, AND A PROGRAM TO MEET THE NEEDS OF ALL STUDENTS, NONE OF WHICH COULD BE PROVIDED ADEQUATELY IN ISOLATED SCHOOLS, WOULD BE POSSIBLE IN THE PLAZA. THE TIMETABLE FOR THE VARIOUS PHASES IS PRESENTED. LONG-RANGE PLANNING TO PROVIDE DEFINITE SOLUTIONS FOR EAST ORANGE'S SCHOOL NEEDS IS DISCUSSED AS A MEANS TO PREVENT HAPHAZARD ADDING, RENOVATING, AND MODERNIZING. THIS ARTICLE WAS PUBLISHED IN "INTEGRATED EDUCATION," ISSUE 13, FEBRUARY 1965.
