Excerpt from Toward Better School Design
The material for this book has been gleaned largely from three sources: (1) research findings of the Texas Engineering Experiment Station, (2) experience of the author as a practitioner, and (3) experience of leading architects and educators whose great contributions made this book possible. The book offers no total solu tions or complete plans. These were intentionally left out. Solutions are relatively unimportant because they apply to only a few situations. What is important is a methodology to be applied in each planning situation to make every new school a better school. The readers will note that this book has not been organized into grade grouping classifications such as elementary schools and high schools. But is there really a difference in the approach to planning elementary schools and high schools? The author's experience has been that there is no difference between planning problems on the two levels which is important enough to require a distinction.
