Summary

One of the most dramatic developments of the new educational programs is the increase in the construction of area vocational schools in the past two and a half years from a total of 405 to 975. The anticipated enrollments by 1975 will almost triple the present enrollments, and to accommodate them there is a need for 1,885 vocational area schools. By 1975, educators will be faced with a deficit of over one million student places. Regarding these area vocational schools, discussion centers around the following--(1) the concept of flexibility and adaptability, (2) environmental standards, (3) acoustical control, (4) instructional staff, (5) occupational clusters, (6) library, (7) facilities for the handicapped, (8) storage facilities, and (9) large city problems. Vocational-technical facilities are illustrating the following trends--(1) greater emphasis on the aesthetic design values, (2) prime features of flexibility, adaptability, modular units, (3) environmental control, (4) preparation room, (5) teacher occupational clusters, (6) student lounges-canteen areas, (7) library-technical resource center, (8) centralized receiving area, (9) facilities for the handicapped, and (10) single school versus educational park plazas.
