Modernising the Schools Infrastructure in England.
This keynote speech addresses how to modernize school infrastructure for the delivery of 21st century education in England, including the background of the English education system and the current state of the English school estate and maintenance backlog. It discusses the government's role for improving the education system and raising standards, new sources of money using public private partnerships, and the following three challenges that large inflows of extra capital present: how to target money more effectively to raise standards; the need for better delivery mechanisms to improve value for money and the stewardship of school premises; and how to evaluate capital spending. Specific programs to address particular needs are also addressed, including the City Learning Centres program, community use of school facilities, and the millennium school. (GR)
