Vocational-Technical Facilities for Secondary Schools: A Planning Guide.
Nerden, Joseph T.
As a result of the tremendous increase in the need for new, well-planned college facilities, the Council of Educational Facility Planners proposes guidelines for the conception, planning, and implementation of such facilities. Major content areas are: (1) Concepts of Vocational-Technical Education, (2) Groups Served by Vocational-Technical Education, (3) Patterns of Vocational-Technical Education, (4) Facility Planning Considerations, (5) Factors Affecting Design and Usefulness, (6) Facility Support Factors and (7) Shops and Laboratories. Patterns of vocational-technical education at the comprehensive, area vocational schools, combination secondary-post secondary institutions, and the regional service center are described. Facility planning considerations include survey, site selection, community attitudes, types and levels of curriculum, and occupational analysis. Other chapters cover equipment selection, adaptability, supporting educational facilities, and the location, types, and sizes of shops and laboratories. (FP)
