      The bigger questions is: what educational impact this will have, not how kids will use the building, but how kids will learn, what they will learn, the methods

        The bigger questions is: what educational impact this will have, not how kids will use the building, but how kids will learn, what they will learn, the methods used to help them learn and the measurable outcomes.

          Absolutely.
           And that teaching and learning requires a modicum of space which is not some abstract construct.
          The DoE's blue book and foot print are an object lesson in metrics gone wild.

           HS students need a college office, kids and teachers and counselors needs rooms for pull out and interventions, schools need to meet as communities for assemblies and events, you need a lab to do science and take certain Regents exams, and the need for cafeterias and bathrooms are not even up for discussion as basic human rights. You can not do certain sports w/o a gym, yet how many schools have no gym or share one w/ other schools and programs so that most students get very little time in them and/or in unsafe conditions?
           This is the physical reality behind the anemic definition of education promoted by this administration, our state ed leaders and the Obama ed policies.

          They would answer your questions , Ellen, by saying: science on a cart, books on a laptop, 15 mins of "fitness" for gym, credit recovery, reduction of services to be held in stairwells and hallways, better/harder tests, etc.
          These are what pass for education here.
           And they leave all those "details"  up to the Principals to work out.
