Earthman's Planning Educational Facilities has been a fundamental text in our superintendency program of study for over a decade at the University of Arkansas, and this new 2009 version will certainly be utilized. A new chapter entitled "Problem-Based Learning" provides students with thought provoking considerations on realistic concerns that will be faced as an educational leader. Included work exercises and case studies allow students to make and justify decisions and support real-world requirements. This is a textbook that all educational leadership programs need to be utilizing. (Carelton R. Holt, assistant department head of curriculum and instruction in the College of Education and Health Professions at the University of, assistant department head of curriculum and instruction in the College of Education and Health Professions at the University of Arkansas, Fayetteville, Arkansas.)
Glen Earthman speaks directly to educational administrators, explaining the educational facility planning process in clear and concise terms. His thorough and comprehensive description provides school leaders a valuable set of tools for meeting their obligations in ushering through school building projects. Earthman challenges educators to engage confidently and creatively, utilizing the events of school construction as a means for furthering student learning and advancing overall educational goals. (Cynthia L. Uline, professor and executive director, The National Center for the Twenty-first Century Schoolhouse, San Diego State University)
Earthman's textbook is one of those rare contributions to the study of educational leadership that transcends classroom instruction. The textbook offers a unique balance between the theoretical and practical knowledge necessary to effectively plan, fund, oversee, and evaluate school construction projects. Students and scholars alike will find the book a concise guide in their study of educational facilities and an invaluable resource throughout their careers. I find my job of developing educational leaders easier since I have Earthman's textbook on my bookshelf. (Spencer C. Weiler, assistant professor of educational leadership, University of Northern Colorado)
