Educational Facility Evaluations of Primary Schools in Rural Honduras: Departments of Cortes and Meambar.
Council of Educational Facility Planners, International, Scottsdale, AZ.
A team of 11 educational facility planners and architects from the United States and Canada conducted a facility evaluation of schools in the rural areas of Meambar and Cortes, Honduras. Team members were all part of the Council of Educational Facility Planners, International and traveled to Honduras under the auspices of a Christian mission group, Heart to Honduras. The purpose of the visit was threefold: to gain a greater understanding of the existing needs and conditions of primary schools; to develop an inventory of existing facilities; and to gather information that could be used to help develop a prototypical rural school facility. Presented are the observations from each school, including a rating scale evaluation of the site, exterior and interior areas, power and plumbing systems, and facility furniture. Recommendations for improving these schools are included. (GR)
