PSBP is Working

A recent opinion poll undertaken by Architects Journal and reported in TES magazine reveals there are many highly critical of the Priority Schools Building Program (PSBP). However, it is important to also understand the positive impacts of PSBP, especially in light of the limited budgets available from central government for all kinds of things. After the Building Schools for the Future program was stopped in its tracks, because frankly the new government at the time decided it could not be afforded, something else was needed. PSBP was launched, with a view to help address as many of those as possible with the greatest need. It is a simple objective but very difficult to balance.
