"School boards and administrators often consider the maintenance budget as soft money that they can cut without affecting core academic program needs; however, scientific literature demonstrates otherwise." - EPA
Health, attendance and academic performance can improve with increased maintenance. Schools with better physical conditions show improved adademic performance, while schools with fewer janitorial staff and higher maintenance backlogs show poorer academic performance.
