Problems in Planning Urban School Facilities.
Chase, William W.
Undertaken to identify, compile, and describe characteristic problems of school facilities planning in metropolitan areas, this study included the fifty largest cities in the United States. The study analyzes the effects on school planning of social, economic, and cultural changes caused by population movement and land use, and controls. Coordination of local, state and federal government agency plans are stressed for school planning. Adapting buildings to future needs, site limitations, economy of the site in terms of acquisition and development costs, location of the site relative to present and future school population, community understanding, and approval of the educational program are also stressed.
