Urban School Facilities: An A-Z Primer. IssueTrak: A CEFPI Brief on Educational Facility Issues
DeJong, William S.
Council of Educational Facility Planners International
This "IssueTrak" addresses the condition of urban school facilities as a matter of great urgency. Facility planners, are committed to working with urban school districts to develop and implement a systematic approach for modernizing aging urban school facilities. The next generation of school children is far too important and valuable to be forced into learning environments that are neither conducive nor appropriate for teaching. Urban children of the 21st Century should have schools that meet current educational needs, yet be flexible enough to accommodate programmatic and pedagogical changes of the future.
