Guide for Planning the Construction of School Buildings: State of New Hampshire, 1971.
New Hampshire State Dept. of Education, Concord.
Those who are responsible for the planning and implementation of a school plant realize the great changes that have taken place in the total process. Rapidly developing technology, new insights about human behavior, and a growing social conscience demand change in educational methodology. With changing methods there follows a requirement for different spatial relationships and altered or new facilities to accommodate the new processes. The need is obvious for educational space and equipment that can be easily and economically adjusted to adapt to the educational changes. Construction of school buildings today should not be so permanent in character that the building determines the program indefinitely, thereby leaving little opportunity for newer methods. This manual keeps such flexibility as a fundamental objective and contains suggestions, recommendations, and minimum requirements with regard to school facility planning. (Author/MLF)
