A Comparative Analysis of the Importance of Selected Elementary School Building Characteristics to Teachers, Principals, and Architects.

Web Abstract: 
Examines the perceptions of teachers, principals, and architects relative to a set of building characteristics for a new elementary school. The data suggests that each group perceives school design features differently and that the professional training of each subject group influences their perception. Teachers and principals demonstrated the most similarity in responses, while teachers and architects demonstrated the least similarity. Analysis of the statistical values produced for the different design categories suggests that the expertise of all three subject groups should be used when new schools are designed. This planning should take place in a cooperative, professional atmosphere.
