Effective Planning for Better School Buildings.
Thrasher, James M.
Citizens, students, and teachers, as well as architects and administrators, should be actively involved in planning for school buildings. This involvement is essential in order that school plants serve their purpose -- facilitating learning. Participation in planning helps to insure financial support and intelligent use of buildings when they are completed. A strong plea is made for provision for enough planning time for thinking and discussion of the kinds of programs, curriculum and experiences for which the facilities are needed. Acceptance and implementation of the concepts -- facility planning as an integral part of curriculum development and all of those affected by the school program to be involved in planning -- should assist in the strengthening of education.
