Simu-School: Center for Urban Educational Planning.

Educational planners face a difficult task of providing quality education to large masses of urban students in the face of decreased revenues, soaring costs, shifting populations, and changing educational programs. Project Simu-School is intended to provide an action-oriented organizational and functional framework necessary for tackling the problems of modern day education planning. Its main objects are to improve the state-of-the-art in educational planning by encouraging research and development; updgrade planning in local areas; improve knowledge and skills of educational planners; investigate alternative strategies for specific planning problems; provide easy access to information about planning; and promote wider community involvement in the planning process. Federal funding has enabled five local education agencies to become components in the development of the national project. The locations and tasks of these agencies are cited. A detailed report of the Chicago component's first year activities and planned program is presented. (Page 33 may reproduce poorly.) (Author/MLF)
