The Center for Cities + Schools launched the Planning for PK-12 Infrastructure Initiative (P4si Initiative) in 2016 to develop a systems-based strategy to address the PK-12 infrastructure crisis.  A new report, Adequate & Equitable U.S. PK-12 Infrastructure Priority Actions For Systemic Reform, discusses findings from the Phase 1 national research engagement process to identify the challenges to adequacy and equity in PK-12 infrastructure. It utilizes these findings to propose further system reforms. With 1/6th of the U.S. population in public school buildings everyday, public schools are the 2nd largest public infrastructure investment after transportation. Policies, practices, facilities, and funding of federal, state, and local authorities are underdeveloped and outdated, leading to the crisis of inadequate and inequitable public school facilities. Fifty-five priority actions were identified in this report to address the systemic problems of delivering adequate and equitable public school facilities.
