The Schoolhouse in the City.
Toffler, Alvin, Ed.
A conference entitled "The Schoolhouse in the City" was convened at Stanford University, July 10-14, 1967. Sponsored by Stanford's School Planning Laboratory and supported by Educational Facilities Laboratories and the U. S. Office of Education, the conference brought together as speakers leading figures in local, state, and federal government, civil rights, sociology, psychology, and urban planning, as well as education and architecture. The 39 speakers analyzed the social, political, economic, physical and educational problems facing the cities; offered solutions to these problems; traced developments in three cities in case study fashion, and projected the possible future of the schoolhouse in the city. This volume is adapted from the proceedings of that conference, although contributions of only seventeen speakers are incorporated. However, a number of contributions not offered at the conference are included. Part III entitled "The Schoolhouse" includes discussion of combined occupancy, educational parks, linear cities, and environment for play. (NI)
