Investing In Our Future
The “Investing In Our Future” study, conducted by Perkins Eastman, explores the impact that school improvements and modernizations can have on student and teacher well-being, satisfaction, and performance. With 53% of U.S. public schools in need of renovations or modernizations to be considered in good overall condition, the cost totaling nearly $200 billion, this level of funding is no small ask for school districts and taxpayers across the country. This report offers strategies and justification for the considerable financial expenditure required to upgrade existing school buildings. The study was conducted at nine public schools in Washington DC, and was co-sponsored by J+J Flooring Group.
