Brubaker, C. William
This document incorporates the findings of a project initiated to find solutions to the problems of planning, designing, constructing, and utilizing facilities to house career education on the part of educational administrators. Traditional solutions, continually increasing costs, and the need for greater emphasis on the learning environment provided the impetus for focusing attention on the options for local determination with minimum emphasis on regulating procedures. Project findings fave rise to some recommendations that the multicenter and the nucleus-and-satellites concept be used; education be integrated more closely with the community; simulation techniques be utilized; that existing buildings sometimes be recycled; and that floating schools, schools-on-rails, and schools-on-tires be developed.
