Realistic Educational Planning. Fundamentals of Educational Planning -- 20.
McKinnon, K. R.
Expertise in the technical aspects of planning and a keen appreciation of the social factors involved are not, in themselves, sufficient for satisfactory educational planning. The plan will still not be feasible unless there is attention to a third group of factors called "practical issues", "organizational features", or "processes". These are the features that must be planned and coordinated if there is to be any chance of getting to an ideal educational structure or the desired quantitative goals. Planners need to be concerned with the legal and regulatory features of the educational system, its organizational framework; and the relation of that framework to the more general pattern of government, the pattern of financing and administration, and the communication and supply networks integral to successful operation.
