Declining to Close Schools: Alternatives for Coping with Enrollment Decline.
Shakeshaft, Charol; Gardner, David W.
Phi Delta Kappan, v64 n7 p492-96 Mar 1983
School closings may not be efficient. They cause political disruption, impede educational effectiveness (through overcrowded buildings and an aging staff), and show little evidence of saving enough money to justify the trouble. Instead, schools should expand, enter new areas, generate new revenues, and redefine their missions. (RW)
