Co-ordination of School and Community Facilities: Implications for Policies. Programme on Educational Building.
Organisation for Economic Cooperation and Development, Paris (France).
In 1975 and 1976, under the Organisation for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD) Programme on Educational Building (PEB), a series of studies was undertaken on coordination of school and community facilities. A number of case studies were carried out in France, Sweden, the United Kingdon, and the United States, countries in which numerous projects have been developed associating school buildings with facilities for other community services. An analysis of the case studies was aimed at showing the potential benefits of such projects and their specific implications for educational building policies, and the work culminated in an international symposium. This leaflet contains the main conclusions of this work, opening with a brief reminder of the way in which it developed and the type of results it has achieved, then summarizing the topics of the five-volume series now being published that presents the results of these studies. This is followed by a section on implications for policies formulated in policy terms that focus on the future and are concerned with what should be done to allow coordination of facilities to develop in the coming years.
