New Problems in School Design: Middle Schools: Implications of Transfer at 12 or 13 Years.
Department of Education and Science, London (England).
The middle school concept is explained for educators and architects. Discussion of the general considerations is centered around the choice of transfer age of 12 or 13. The building regulations which were formerly established for a transfer age of 11 are now being updated to 12 and 13. Floor plans of new schools and extensions to existing schools explain the physical environmental requirements of the middle school. (TC)
