MEEB: Model for the Evaluation of Educational Buildings.
McGuffey, Carroll W.
This monograph describes the basic conceptual background, the content, and the processes of a systematized approach to the evaluation of educational facilities. The system, the Evaluation of Educational Buildings (MEEB), focuses on a process that compares existing educational buildings in terms of a set of standards, and provides for an analysis in terms of the discrepancies between "what exists" and "what should be." The system incorporates a comprehensive approach with broad application and provides up-to-date information on the condition of facilities as they may affect the general welfare of occupants, and information required for the control of technical and educational obsolescence. It also facilitates the utilization of educational space, aids in maximizing the use of resources allocated to education, and enhances planning and decisionmaking related to the fulfillment of requirements generated by changing educational programs. A selected bibliography is included. (Author/MLF)
