Carpet Wins Cautious Approval.
Betchkal, James
Nation's Schools, v73 n4 p79-81, 122, 124, Apr 64
Schoolmen across the country are finding that not only teachers and students but taxpayers show signs of recognizing that carpet as a school floor covering may offer more function than frill in assessment of the product; however, many architects and schoolmen are withholding final judgment because not enough carpeted schools have been around long enough. Studies conducted so far by school districts using carpet rarely consider the replacement cost of carpet versus other floor coverings. In addition to having a lack of experience with carpet as a floor covering, schoolmen are faced with apparently conflicting statements about cost comparisons between carpet and tile. Some of the typical questions asked by administrators along with answers based on materials supplied by schoolmen, architects, and the American Carpet Institute are included. (RK)
