Planning for Future Forms of Education: Towards an Educational and Educational Facilities Planning Model.
Leu, Donald J.
The author provides an overview and conceptualization of the total educational and educational facility planning process. The presentation attempts to provide a simple practical outline for local planners, so they may actively engage in relevant educational facility planning, and a common conceptual base, so the various components of Project Simu-School may design research and development projects that will enhance the planning process. The author considers four alternative levels of educational planning: the educational facility plan (the most commonly utilized process for determining school building needs); the educational improvements needed for the system as a whole and translated into educational facility needs; the development of a comprehensive-coordinated land use plan of which the educational plan is a part; and the development of recommended plans for improving the quality of life and living for all residents--to increase lay citizen participation, understanding, control, and support of education; and diffuse and share planning and decisionmaking.
