School Infrastructure

The fact is that a good school infrastructure, with renewed spaces, makes it possible for children and youths that live in remote areas to study and, in addition, tends to improve the attendance and interest of students and teachers in learning. For this same reason, investments in school infrastructure have an essential role in solving access problems of students to the school system and to improve their performance.


According to the experts, it must at least comply with the following parameters:

  • Comfort for students, teachers, and administrators: spaces for teachers and students, with an adequate temperature, ventilation, and lighting, with water, electricity, and Internet services, as well as sanitary services and the respective drainage of sewage waters.
  • Spaces for the development of rehearsals and practices such as libraries, and natural sciences, information technology, physics and chemistry labs.
  • Spaces for the development of talents and entertainment, sports, and culture.

“The improvement of the physical conditions of schools is as closely related to learning as other educational inputs including home environment, motivation, good teachers, libraries, technologies, or student services”.
