The Daily Californian reported a recently released study by the UC Berkeley Center for Cities and Schools found that more than half of the state’s school districts fail to meet industry standards for maintenance spending.
57 percent of the 879 state school districts surveyed in the study fail to meet benchmarks in capital improvement spending, or spending for major constructional improvements, and 62 percent fail to reach the spending standards for basic maintenance and operation.
Unfortunately, this trend is reflective of public school maintenance funding across the US.
