Systems: An Approach to School Construction.
Griffin, C. W., Jr.
This report describes some programs that attempt to raise the quality of school buildings without raising the cost of building them. Educational changes have required new sets of spaces in schoolhouses, whose specifications could only be met by changes in building technology and in construction management. This triumvirate of change emerged in the form of the systems approach to school construction, which necessitates an improvement in building technology, but demands a revolution in management techniques. Five cases of school construction using the systems approach are presented to acquaint educationists with the advantages of systems applications. (Author/RA)
