New Report Finds that More Than Half of School Buildings Lack Accessibility
July 27, 2020
A new report from the Government Accountability Office describes nearly two-thirds of American school buildings as lacking adequate access for students and staff with disabilities. Additionally, the report found that many districts have delayed projects that are critical for facilities to function, including roofing and heating. The findings echo increased conversations about the state of America’s education infrastructure, which have reached new levels of prominence amid school shootings in recent years and, of course, amid the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.
