  • Introduction

    Educational planning is concerned with forecasting in educational institutions and school plant planning processes. It concerns itself with distribution of resources and decision-making procedures and concerns regarding interpersonal treatment and interactional planning in school systems. Over the past decades, educational institutions have experienced enormous challenges and changes. In particular, educational institutions have been positioned as a means to contribute to the knowledge economy and gain a level of competitive advantage in the global marketplace by producing competent graduates.

However, with increasing pressure on educational institutions to “do more with less,” educational planning can help to maintain or improve the quality of products and services delivery in educational institutions while at the same time significantly reduce cost of running educational institutions.
