Financial and Building Needs of the Schools of Lexington, Kentucky. Bulletin, 1919, No. 68
Bureau of Education, Department of the Interior
This bulletin presents a study of the financial and building needs of the public schools of Lexington, Kentucky. The report shows that there is immediate and urgent need for new permanent buildings, temporary or movable buildings, and repairs, at which, at present prices of material and labor, will cost not less than $400,000, and that there will in the immediate future be need for other permanent buildings to house the rapidly increasing school population of the city. The report also shows clearly the need for considerable increase in the budget for current expense, because of the increase in school population and the absolute necessity for increase in the pay of teachers and janitors to prevent lowering standards and degeneration in the quality of work, and to make possible the constant improvement in the efficiency of the schools which the people of Lexington and the welfare of city, State, and Nation demand. The following three chapters are included: (1) Financing the school department of Lexington, Kentucky; (2) An analysis of the building problem; and (3) The care of buildings and of equipment. Individual chapters contain footnotes. [Best copy available has been provided.]
