Facilities Research Review Finds Gaps and Unfunded Programs
“A Synthesis of Research on Charter School Facilities” examines the current charter school facility landscape and identifies four key findings:
1. The average U.S. public school building is dilapidated, and low-income and students of color are disproportionately likely to attend schools in underfunded and poor-quality facilities.
2. Access to facilities may be influencing the charter school pipeline and amount of public funds spent on charter facilities.
3. Many State funding and financing programs, created to offset the cost of charter school facilities, are not currently funded.
4. Programs providing credit enhancement to charter schools offer low-cost and highly effective means of expanding affordable financing options for charter schools.
