can raise educational standards. Our analysis suggests that the English policy of increasing school, spending over the past few years has been worth the investment. Doane B.T (2008) Studied the relationship between school facilities & academic achievement. This project involved an interview with three faculty members at each of three high schools in rural Appalachian Ohio. In order to be considered for participation in this study, the chosen schools had to meet one of following criteria: recently having moved into a new facility, currently building a new facility, or having no current plans for new construction. the majority of interview participants felt that the building does have an effect on pupils achievement it found that the…show more content…
