Expecting the Most from School Design.
Bradley, William S.
This document discusses five principles thought essential to breaking with the past and establishing a new standard for school facilities design. These principles demand that schools be exemplary examples to students in pursuing new frontiers; that they direct students by encouraging proper behaviors; and that they evoke a spirit of place, represent three-dimensional opportunities to support teaching, and affect positive change in education. Final comments briefly highlight why school districts often fail to design schools that fall short of these principles. (GR)
