Educational Park Development in the United States, 1969: A Survey of Current Development Plans with a List of Reports and References on the Educational Park. Educational Park Project.
Wolff, Max; Rudikoff, Benjamin
Part I of this report surveys current plans for educational park development, i.e., a cluster of schools in a campus-like setting sharing a central administration and some common facilities. Information, gleaned from State Commissioners of Education, State Commissioners by regions, superintendents, researchers and planners, showed that there are 35 cities and smaller communities committed to the educational park concept. The report reviews the various stages of planning and construction of the park concept in these cities categorized according to size. Part II includes feasibility studies and reports made by school boards of education, information on funding under Title III of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act, and references to books, pamphlets, independent studies, magazine articles, newspaper items, conference reports, statements, and speeches. Appendixes give alternative labels for the respective location of these projects in the educational park concept, publications by the Center for Urban Education, and an index of cities and county school districts reported in the survey.
