Research, Development & Dissemination in Educational Planning & Educational Facilities Planning. Project SIMU-School.
Hunt, Lester W.; Burr, Donald F.
The Simu-School Program and the National Center for Educational Planning were conceived because of the need for (1) expertise in educational planning, (2) a system to collect and assemble the vast amount of knowledge concerning education, (3) community involvement in planning, and (4) a system to accurately interpret today's data in planning for the future. Through a coordinated system of components, a National Center would pull together and tackle these urgent needs and accumulate and distribute the knowledge and information needed for improved educational planning. A national information Simu-School Program would develop and implement effective educational planning using computer simulation, gaming, and mathematical modeling as primary tools; train educational planners to solve a variety of planning problems in a variety of community environments; test alternative solutions to planning problems in a variety of community environments; and forecast the kinds of problems that may arise in the future so that planners can begin to deal with them now.
