Comparative Study of Secondary School Building Costs. Educational Organization, Documents No. 4.
Hutton, Jeoffrey; Rostron, Michael
This report summarizes a study to help member States compare their expenditures on educational facilities and to analyze their capital costs in the context of national resources and educational and social objectives. Sponsored by UNESCO, the study covered 14 UNESCO member States in Africa, Asia, and Latin America; and included visits to some 100 secondary schools, the bulk of which were constructed during 1960-70. The report attempts to help educational administrators understand the value of undertaking surveys of this type and the importance of making the planning of educational facilities an integral part of their educational planning activities. The appendixes will be of particular interest to architects, engineers, and administrators responsible for the design and construction of educational buildings. (Author)
