Cost, Design and Climate: Building a Learning Environment.
Maiden, Jeffrey; Foreman, Bill A.
School Business Affairs, v64 n1 p40-44 Jan 1998
Research has shown that a school building's condition affects student achievement and behavior and that certain facility design elements can improve the learning climate. An ideal CDC (cost-design-climate) associative environment has a balanced interrelationship among the three elements. Unnecessarily emphasizing one or more elements may seriously compromise intended results. Facility design components (lighting, ceilings, floors, and other elements) are discussed. (MLH)
