Do the conditions of school facilities affect academic outcomes?
Your topic has been submitted and is awaiting moderation.
A common question that has come up over the years is whether or not the quality of a building's conditions have an effect on student scores and other statistics. Research can be found at http://www.epa.gov/iaq/schools/student_performance/evidence.html and http://www.schooldude.com/Portals/0/public%20content/reports%20and%20presentations/facilities%20management/do%20school%20facilities%20affect%20academic%20outcomes.pdf. Some groups mentioned how conditions affected staff retention and quality of their work environment. What are your thoughts? Any stories or feedback to share with the group?
