Crisis in Planning. An Analysis of Some Factors that Influence the Kinds of Schools We Have, How They Got That Way, and What We Must Do About Changing Them.
Theodores, James L.; And Others
In this, the author's interpretation of the current status of educational facility planning practices throughout the nation, the deficiency in proper planning is lamented. The point is made that two basic causes underlie these conditions--(1) irrational school organization that divides people, resources, and energies into mutually exclusive but impotent camps, and (2) reliance upon folkways rather than technical proficiency and upon folklore rather than research in the design of school facilities. Some short term recommendations include an increasing look to technology and research for better answers to design problems, while the long term exhortation prescribes new kinds of leadership from state education agencies, professional associations, and universities. Several steps that the Council of Educational Facility Planners can take in these directions are also outlined. (NI)
