Perceptions of Educators about School Design Issues.

Web Abstract: 
Research results are presented from focus groups and telephone surveys concerning the attitudes and opinions of public school educators on the issue of school design, including an additional report summarizing what educators would want to see in a millennial school design. The first section presents the findings from two focus groups conducted among metropolitan Atlanta educators concerning general school design, schools and their communities, classroom design, common areas, and other design issues. The second section analyzes the results from a telephone survey of educators from seven different metropolitan areas throughout the United States. Survey questions addressed the importance of school design, the teacher's role, rating design elements, time management, and collaboration. Brief summaries of the findings from both study approaches are provided.
