Important Factors in Developing a School Building Program

by N. L. Engelhardt - 1922

The school building is the most important physical agency or instrument utilized in the educative process. The school building is a means to the end, not an end in itself. The problems involved in school building planning and school building construction are mere resultants of the acceptance of an educational policy and the establishment of definite educational aims. In the past when the educational program had not been clearly defined and the conservation of health, the development of home makers, the vocational aspects of education, and the like had not been given a place among the definite aims to be achieved, the school building problem was a simple one, indeed. The experience and practices of years have clarified the educational ends to be sought. With this development and determining of educational aims has come the demand for school housing of such construction and character as to tax severely the community purse and to bring to the fore the questions of economy, adaptability, and efficiency which too often have been ignored or overlooked in the past.
