Modernizing America's Schools for the 21st Century.
Department of Education, Washington, DC.
School enrollment is increasing in record numbers but the average public school is 42 years old, rapidly deteriorating, and technologically inadequate. The President's FY2000 budget includes two proposals for the nation's public school modernization: $25 billion in bonds for school construction and renovation (up to 6000 public schools); and $10 billion to design schools as centers of the community. Modernization bond qualifications are listed. (GR)
