Schooling's Crumbling Infrastructure: Addressing a Serious and Underappreciated Problem.

Web Abstract: 
Reviews the poor condition of America's schools, how the situation has not improved since significant coverage of the situation in the late 1990's, and how the condition of school facilities has fallen off the agenda in Washington, to the point that in some cases mandates of the No Child Left Behind Act cannot be accommodated due to dilapidated facilities. Opportunities for federal and nonprofit investment are described, and nontraditional and flexible approaches to school housing are urged.
