Building Better Outcomes: The Impact of School Infrastructure on Student Outcomes and Behaviour. Schooling Issues Digest.
This digest reviews a range of research studies that examine the possible causal linkages between school buildings and student outcomes and behavior, and it presents findings in support of the theory that facilities make a difference and also presents findings in areas where research to date is relatively inconclusive. The report also examines studies concerning the relationship between student outcomes and behavior based on the overall building condition as well as the influence of individual building elements. Also discussed are design factors that can influence learning outcomes and behavior. A list of Web sites for additional information is included. (Contains 31 endnotes.) (GR)
