    If studies, and research were accurate, our schools would produce citizens needing less food stamps, and welfare.

    This is a scam and needs to be revealed as such. There is NO WAY there is any factor that impacts student achievement by 24%. Every few years the architects do a "study" that proves their buildings (that are significantly more expensive) are something we MUST build for students. They heap on the guilt and people buy it - and pay big bucks for school buildings that have wasted space and cost multiple times the amount of buildings we could be building for our kids.

    I wish our reporters could be more critical in their articles - this was basically an advertisement for the architects. I realize this was a story from out of our country that was not written by DesNews reporters - but it is problematic to print it as if it passes some kind of muster when it is truly a promotional piece for the architects and nothing more.
