Financing School Construction. Educational Facilities Review Series, Number 12.
Piele, Philip K.
The combination of defeated bond issues and rising building costs is contributing to a decline in both the construction of new school buildings and the remodeling of existing buildings. For the first time in many years, debt service and capital outlay expenditures actually declined on a per pupil basis. No change in either voter preferences or inflationary trends appear imminent. If needed school facilities are to be built, it is clear that alternative means of financing school construction must be found. Solutions to the problem of financing school construction have been suggested by several experts in the field. The most thorough analyses of the problem have been made by the National Educational Finance Project and the Educational Facilities Laboratories. These and other analyses are reviewed along with bibliographies on the subject. Nine of the documents contained in this review are available through the ERIC Document Reproduction Service. (Author)
