Concept of a Model City Complex
Giammatteo, Michael C.
The model cities concept calls for an educational complex which includes the nonschool educational institutions and facilities of the community as well as actual school facilities. Such an educational complex would require a wider administrative base than the school yet smaller than the municipal government. Examples of nonschool educational institutions which could be developed for model city residents include: (1) School/community library, (2) Teaching materials center, (3) performing arts auditorium/theatre, (4) shops and laboratories, (5) sports facilities, (6) instructional technology center, (7) preschool with a parent education center, (8) early childhood education center, (9) adult education center, (10) guidance and counseling center, (11) career development center, (12) health and social service center, (13) special education facilities, (14) transportation headquarters and, (15) diagnostic and remedial reading center.
