Pursuant to a congressional request, GAO reviewed the condition of America's schools, focusing on state-specific information about school buildings, environmental conditions, needed maintenance and costs, and financial burdens to meet federal mandates on correcting environmental hazards and providing access to the disabled.

GAO found that: (1) the data obtained from its survey of 10,000 schools was based on school officials' estimates and was not independently verified; and (2) each state includes information on the state's general education context, the state's role in school facilities, the extent of facility needs, and the amounts the state has spent or needs to spend to meet federal mandates.
