A Method of Reducing Classroom Requirements in Primary Schools in Asia. Occasional Paper - School Building No. 13.
Srivastava, R.D.; And Others
In an attempt to more closely relate the size of primary schools in Uttar Pradesh, India to the teaching activities, an experiment was conducted in some forty schools where classrooms were provided only for lessons for which covered space was essential. All other lessons were conducted in the open on the school site. An area utilization reduction of about 40% was achieved as well as a side effect of greater student interest due to increased individual activity. Climatic conditions in India were examined and it was concluded that outdoor teaching north of latitude 19 degrees North and below 2,000 feet above mean sea level is quite feasible. (NI)
