This paper attempts to spell out some possible solutions to major problems confronted by new town planners and local school districts faced with new towns suddenly appearing within their borders. A number of possible alternative routes that developers and school districts might explore in attempting to cope with such problems are also discussed. The problems considered concern the wisest approaches to planning educational systems for new towns; ways of providing educational space on short notice; ways of financing the educational programs and new facilities for new town children in the face of grave financial shortages; ways of governing the new town educational system; and possible problems created by the costly overlapping and duplication of municipal services.
