The professional and research literature during the last several years has been replete with information concerning school lighting. The numerous changes in school lighting which have been developed have revolutionized school plant planning. The purpose of this article is to call attention to some of the recent trends in this area. The change has been from the emphasis on footcandles alone to the importance of brightness, brightness-contrast and brightness ratios as controlling factors in providing "good seeing." In short, the trend has been from "how much light" to "how well we can see."
