APPENDIX XII 1937 Appraisal of Hartford Schools
In these buildings most of the principles according to which school buildings should be erected are violated, and yet 1,700 children are enrolled here. The natural and artificial lighting standards were ignored. Service facilities were placed without regard to the comfort of the children. Unsafe stairways were installed, basement rooms were used for educational purposes, and play opportunity in large measure was unprovided for. The Board of Education should set up standards for future sites and future buildings and should insist upon close adherence thereto.
