So your regional leadership has announced a major school construction plan that will cost tens, if not hundreds, of millions in taxpayer dollars. 

School Construction

Is the program really needed? Who are the winners and losers? What alternatives are available to ensure greater grassroots benefits?

This is a republishing of a whitepaper on a then proposed Cincinnati school facilities program. It presents aspects of school construction – e.g., political, economic – that taxpayers must consider during period of intense [emotional] appeals, promises, and regional public figures advocating these projects. The whitepaper also presents innovative approaches to leveraging school construction investment to serve the more general needs of communities.

Consider this a resource or template for other cities faced with proposals similar to the Cincinnati, Ohio program.
