Sprout Spaces vs. Cheap Classroom Trailers

As school budgets continue to dwindle while enrollments soar, schools districts across the US turn to portable trailer classrooms as the default quick fix. In fact, the use of portable classrooms continues to grow at more than 20% every year. Scrambling for fast and inexpensive solutions, school boards typically perceive these portable classrooms as only temporary fixes. However, more often than not they turn out to be faulty long-term solutions that are failing to provide our children adequate learning environments. Many districts are finding that investing into cheap portable classrooms is backfiring in a number of ways, including increasing maintenance and repair costs of these substandard spaces and poor academic performance.
