I keep meaning to post a link to this great article from that renowned economics journal, People.
It’s a solid summary of the on-the-ground benefits of a school repair program like FAST!
As one educator says in the piece, referring to a dilapidated school:
“This space doesn’t show that adults place a priority on schools, and students rightly think, ‘My education is not very important to you.’”
Or maybe you’d be more convinced by this 10-year old:
“It would make it better if we could run without having to trip over the old boards in the gym.”
