Abstract

One of the great problems facing the public schools of America today is that of providing adequate school facilities. The immediate need for new buildings is overwhelming. Contributing factors to the need for expanded school plant facilities can be classified, both as a result of a backlog of school building needs over a period of several decades, and because of greatly increased enrollments. A publication of the United States Office of Education summarized a discussion of these factors as follows: The public schools entered the 1950 decade with a backlog of need for more than 250,000 classrooms and faced anticipated enrollment increases of nearly 7 million pupils during the decade."
