York Univ., Downsview (Ontario).
This document includes six papers presented at the conference. Raymond T. Affleck, in a concluding address, enlarges the general theme of the conference to "Learning Environments - Why, What, How?". James A. Gibson, in "Every Man His Own Architect," says that school planners should possess the characteristics of an architect who looks around him and brings to his immediate tasks a wide experience of men and things, sensitivity and judgment, and the capacity to encourage others to their best efforts. Stewart C. Mason's speech, "In Our Experience," concerns the history and current development of education in Leicestershire, England. Alfred Roth, in "Better Schools for Progressive Education," discusses the present state and development of school building; and David A. A. Stager, in"An Economist's View of Schools and Schooling," discusses productivity and efficiency, financing, and programs. Cicely Watson, in "Specifying Future Educational Needs in a Changing Political Climate," outlines some of the problems inherent in balancing educational needs with economic and political conditions.
