Report on Task Force Division of School Facilities, School District of Philadelphia: Commission to Investigate Relationships between Educational Performance and Size of Student Body, May 11, 1970.
Philadelphia School District, PA.
The Philadelphia Art Commission refused to approve the proposed Eastwick/Pepper Educational Complex that combines a high school and a middle school into one facility. Their rejection was based on (1) the prohibitively large numbers of children the school is to serve, (2) the overly broad age span of the students, and (3) the inadequate outside space. Professional experts from the fields of education, psychology, urban planning, and architecture, as well as three members of the commission, participated in two symposia to discuss these objections. The task force, concluding that the design features of the proposed school complex were sufficiently adequate to override the objections, endorsed the proposed complex. (Author/MLF)
