    Planning education

    I'm looking for a definition, if you will, of "planning education" ie what does it entail, what does it focus on, how is it done, how would someone involved in teaching future planners describe it. or where would I go to find out?

    I know its an open ended type question but I need a good definition!

    help and useful suggestions are most appreciated

    Tom

    Oy! That's an impossible task. I guess what I would contribute is a perception that planning education is biased in favor of a particular urban form, often fails to relate to small and rural communities (except for ideas like farmland preservation), and does not provide enough education in market analysis or development eonomics.
