The physical environment is considered to be vitally linked to the success of the educational program, and that which requires a minimum of body energy for adaptation and thereby releases a maximum amount of energy for purposeful living is considered the best educational environment. Planning of educational facilities is discussed within this context. Each existing school building is evaluated in terms of educational adequacy, which involves judgment of site, safety, room capacity, room relationships, room characteristics, and general overall environment. A few of the more important regulations and standards upon which the evaluation is based are presented. Consideration is also given to curricular trends that influence facilities. Suggestions and recommendations are made for new facilities. (FS)
