Earthquakes Threaten Many American Schools
Bailey, Nancy E.
Phi Delta Kappan, v91 n7 p35-39 Apr 2010

Several cities and states have worked to identify and repair unsafe buildings, but many others have done little or nothing to fix the problem. The reasons for ignoring the problem include political and financial ones, but also simply denying there is a problem.
