Green New Deal Plan - City Regional Network

Rebuild/build school facilities

Education is a central component of the Green New Deal, and therefore school facilities are an important part of the infrastructure. According to the American Society of Civil Engineers, the last in-depth report was in 1999, however, they estimate that $270 billion worth of work is required. Assuming we want to build more schools, let's say we need $400 billion over 20 years, or 20 billion dollars per year. If we assume $50,000 per job, including manufacturing the materials needed as well as the, mostly, construction jobs, then we are talking about 400,000 jobs, with 100,000 in manufacturing (assuming 25% of jobs are in manufacturing).
