    Quizzical Pursuit - The Architecture Puzzler

    by Dave Guadagni

    Answer for Last Week's Puzzler

    According to "American School & University" magazine, public school districts across the United States put more than $17 billion worth of construction in place in 1998. On average the construction cost per student in a new high school was about:
    a) $8,500?
    b) $19,300? c) $24,800?

    Answer: 

    On average U.S. public school districts paid $19,248 per student (for about 170 square feet, 15.8 square meters). Middle schools paid $17,177 per student (for 146 square feet, 13.6 square meters). Elementary schools spent about 2/3 that of high schools ($12,992 for 120 square feet, 11.1 square meters). This of course makes perfect sense since elementary aged kids are about 2/3 grown.
