INVESTING IN THE FUTURE
Each weekday, approximately 55 million students head off to more than 130,000 private and public schools* across the United States—and studies have shown that how well they learn is affected by the quality and upkeep of the facilities.
The learning environment—lighting, HVAC, acoustics and the physical condition of the buildings—matters to our children’s education and their futures. Helping communities develop and maintain safe and secure education facilities is critical to improving academic performance, recruiting and retaining teachers, encouraging enrollment, and increasing parental involvement.
That’s why education facilities are among our core portfolio segments. We embrace the opportunity to grow deeper into the market and broader into the financing and development of education facilities. This private-public partnership can help schools allocate financial responsibility for large capital costs and defer these costs over time. It allows us to do well for our investors and do good in the community.
