SIMU School: A Path Toward Better Planning.
Cornish, Richard D.; Hunt, Lester W.
The materials in this booklet began as a script for a tape/slide progress report on Project Simu School, to be used in presentations to various groups who have had an interest in the project. The project was developed to create and implement a system to piece together and communicate educational knowledge to enable educators to improve their planning ability. The development of the project, its funding, and its components are outlined. The Chicago component is described as focusing its efforts on the problems unique to the urban community; the Santa Clara County component as working on bettering the planning process in communities moving from rural to urban characteristics; and the Dallas component as utilizing existing computer capability to develop simulation models which will promote better planning, as well as more efficient operation in a variety of school systems. All three components have worked toward the establishment of a National Center for Educational Planning. The appendixes contain a directory of personnel in the various components and the National Advisory Planning Board, as well as a listing of available publications.
