Today we break down the literature for exterior and interior pathways in education communities. We limit the term “pathway” to refer to human pathways (as in egress and ingress paths); not wiring or piping pathways. Maximum distance of travel from within a building and along an egress path toward safety is a core topic in building safety literature.
The topic involves titles from many standards setting organizations; among them:
“The Renaissance of Burnley” Nicole Burnley | University College of London
In Rome you long for the country;
in the country – oh inconstant! – you praise the distant city to the stars.
As cities-within-cities, education communities stakeholders in broad policy formulation of town-gown infrastructure of the emergent #WiseCampus. Since 2014 we have been participants in this project, supporting the original US TAG — the National Fire Protection Association. Last year the NFPA relinquished the US TAG role in this project but we are on “standby” and ready to resume activity when a replacement US TAG is found.
Consensus documents emerging from ISO/TC 268 tend to be large, fast-moving and highly interdependent. Drafts for US stakeholder comment and balloting arrive frequently as new workgroups are spawned from the core ISO TC/268 committees.

April 2018 Update:
At the 2017 Paris meeting of TC/268, the UK suggested that it would be helpful to develop an overall maturity model for cities, drawing on the framework set out by SC1 in ISO/DIS 37153. The TC agreed, and WG4 was asked to work up proposals.
At its Berlin meeting in May, WG4 made good progress and recommended a way forward. But in plenary discussion with other working groups, there was concern that WG4 was moving too quickly and on too narrowly‐focused a basis
The purpose of a recent release by ISO TC/268 — an outline of city “maturity models” — is to respond to those concerns, proposing a broader framework for future work in this area across TC/268

We sweep through the world’s three major time zones; updating our understanding of the literature at the technical foundation of education community safety and sustainability in those time zones 24 times per day. We generally eschew “over-coding” web pages to sustain speed, revision cadence and richness of content as peak priority. We do not provide a search facility because of the time sensitivity of almost everything we do.
Our daily colloquia are typically doing sessions; with non-USA titles receiving priority until 16:00 UTC and all other titles thereafter. We assume policy objectives are established (Safer-Simpler-Lower-Cost, Longer-Lasting). Because we necessarily get into the weeds, and because much of the content is time-sensitive and copyright protected, we usually schedule a separate time slot to hammer on technical specifics so that our response to consultations are meaningful and contribute to the goals of the standards developing organization and to the goals of stewards of education community real assets.
1. Leviathan. We find 15,828 bills and resolutions introduced into the United States Congress as of 11 August 2022 many of them titled in Orwellian Doublespeak with shocking disregard for the common sense of the American people. Conversely, one might wonder why the “American People”; traditionally legal citizens of a federal democratic republic, persist in keeping those representatives in office. Release of the 725 page Inflation Reduction Act of 2022 which few people are able to read in its entirety provides no better an example. Feel free to examine it with search terms such as “school”, “college” or “university”. The mind boggles.
Tracking federal legislative action provides a stroboscopic view of the cultural moment. Arguably it is impossible to resolve technical problems without sensitivity to the cultural zietgeist now accelerating in education communities everywhere.
We typically post one federal and one state level consultation or action every day for at least one of the 50-states — in the lower right corner of our home page when most education communities in the United States have begun a new work day.
We post US state level standards action between 17:00 and +02:00 UTC every day in the lower right corner of our home page but the algorithm for consultation linkages will likely be lit until later in 2022. Example:
