OUTLINE OF AN URBAN EDUCATIONAL MODEL.
LYLE, JEROLYN R.; O'BRIEN, RICHARD J.
THIS TECHNICAL NOTE IS A NONTECHNICAL DISCUSSION OF THE URBAN EDUCATION MODEL, AN ANALYTIC, SYMOBLIC MODEL TO BE USED IN PLANNING THE LOCATION AND ENROLLMENT SIZE OF URBAN SCHOOLS. AMONG THE EDUCATIONAL ALTERNATIVES THAT MAY BE CONSIDERED BY THE METHODOLOGY PRESENTED ARE THE "GREAT HIGH SCHOOLS" AND THE "EDUCATIONAL PARKS." THE CENTRAL ORIENTATION OF THE URBAN EDUCATIONAL MODEL IS PLANNING THE LOCATION AND ENROLLMENT SIZE OF ELEMENTARY AND SECONDARY SCHOOL PLANTS. FOUR SUB-MODELS COMPOSE THE GENERAL URBAN EDUCATION MODEL. THE URBAN SUB-MODEL DETERMINES ATTENDANCE AREA BOUNDARIES BY ASSIGNING PUPILS TO SCHOOLS SO AS TO ACHIEVE GIVEN OBJECTIVES. THE SCHOOL SUB-MODEL ESTIMATES SPACE AND STAFF REQUIREMENTS PER SCHOOL. THE COST SUB-MODEL ESTIMATES THE COST IMPLICATIONS OF ATTENDANCE AREA BOUNDARIES AND SPACE-STAFF REQUIREMENTS. THE EFFECTIVENESS SUB-MODEL ASSURES THAT A PREDICTION OF ACHIEVEMENT LEVELS ON AN AGGREGATED SCHOOL PLANT BASIS MAY BE MADE BASED ON THE VARIABLES DEFINED IN OTHER SUB-MODELS, THAT IS STUDENT SOCIOECONOMIC AND SCHOOL VARIABLES. THE MODEL DOES NOT YIELD A "SOLUTION" BUT DOES PROVIDE AN ARRAY OF MEASURES OF POTENTIAL USE TO THE SCHOOL ADMINISTRATOR. EA 001 235 IS A RELATED DOCUMENT. (HW)
