School Site Decisions and Dollars.
Grube, Karl W.
Three papers, each with an extensive bibliography, advance arguments concerning (1) the school site as a public land resource, (2) school board policy as related to economic alternatives for open space school site planning, and (3) the establishment of outdoor classrooms on school sites as public policy. In the first paper, the author contends that school officials should develop and implement comprehensive public land use policies applicable to the enhancement of the public school site, public policies that could insure the environmental quality of community-owned school sites and a land resource rightfully belonging to future generations. In the second paper, the author states that solutions to environmental problems of land development and utilization could and should be formulated by elected public officials such as school board members, with the land size of the public school site, its degree of development, and the natural and man made amenities contributing significantly to the formation of citizen attitudes. In the third paper, the author argues that learning opportunities for K-12 pupils could best be accomplished through the design, development, and implementation of an outdoor classroom on the school site. He offers an outdoor classroom public site policy to school officials as a model for implementation, in part, of a State masterplan for environmental education for elementary and secondary education.
