Infographic: 2016 State of Our Schools: America's K-12 Facilities

Published on Written by Posted in Center for Green Schools

The 2016 State of Our Schools: America’s K–12 Facilities report shows that the nation faces a projected annual shortfall of $46 billion in school funding, despite significant effort on the part of local communities. The report was released today by the Center for Green Schools, the 21st Century School Fund and the National Council on School Facilities,  

The report features an in-depth, state-by-state analysis of investment in school infrastructure and focuses on 20 years of school facility investment nationwide, as well as funding needed moving forward to make up for annual investment shortfalls for essential repairs and upgrades. The report also proposes recommendations for investments, innovations and reforms to improve learning environments for children in all U.S. public schools.
