Independent and charter school construction is on the rise. That’s good news for any community. Unfortunately, according to the first overall assessment conducted by the National Alliance for Public Charter Schools (from the 2011-2012 school year), statistics revealed that over half of America’s current charter school facilities are not adequate for growth.
