The Importance of Maintaining Public School Facilities

This national study, “Addressing Inadequate Investment in School Facility Maintenance” (2010), by Bello and Loftness, is available in PDF format and free for downloading and distribution. It’s being showcased by Carnegie Mellon University’s College of Fine Arts and School of Architecture. There’s a brief section on classroom temperatures (fans, AC) and their impact on learning, a problem that has concerned Sen. Shimabukuro for many years. The problem of deferred maintenance of schools and its consequences is the most important message in this study.
