Historic Neighborhood Schools Deliver 21st Century Educations.
Beaumont, Constance E.
Noting the benefits of small neighborhood schools, this article asserts that recent renovations of historic schools in Spokane, Washington; San Antonio, Texas; and Boise, Idaho, illustrate these points and challenge the notion that well-renovated historic schools cannot meet modern standards. The article recounts the stories of these schools and concludes with several briefer examples that show how communities have found creative solutions to common problems encountered during historic renovation.
