Pedagogical Site Policy and Neighborhood Quality.
Thiel, Frank William; Grube, Karl William
The Thiel Model for school site planning exemplifies a multidisciplinary approach to school site planning theory and a historical synthesis of seven decades of public school site planning research. The model relates the cause and effect relationships of the educational policy-making variables of economic, political, and social pressures to the school site variables of selection, planning and construction, and environment. The interaction of these variables has contributed to the current standards of public school site policy. Analyses of these current standards yielded 21 concepts of school site planning. Further extrapolation produced 10 principles of future school site policy. A flow chart schematic and outline description of the model is presented. (Author/MLF)
