Northeast and Islands Regional Educational Lab. at Brown Univ., Providence, RI.
Declining physical conditions of school buildings, overcrowding, and lack of electrical systems to support new technology are rampant in schools throughout the United States, particularly in schools that can least afford to correct these problems. This document addresses the question of why school condition needs to be addressed, the major causes of the current condition of America's schools, the role states can play in funding school facilities, and the alternative mechanisms for funding facilities projects.
