Nation spends $46 billion less each year on school maintenance than needed, report finds

 


WASHINGTON – The nation is spending $46 billion less each year on school construction and maintenance than is necessary to ensure safe and healthy facilities, according to estimates in a new report.

The study, released by a group that advocates for environmentally sound buildings, is meant to draw attention to the condition of buildings that on weekdays house some 56 million students and teachers — more than one-sixth of the U.S. population — but that nevertheless attract little attention in the national debate over education policy and reform.
