Poor environment in schools, adversely influence the health, performance, and attendance of the student. According to AFT’s 2006 research that poor lightning, inadequate ventilation, crumbling walls, damaged ceiling tiles, and inoperative heating and air conditioning system are some of its factors (Building Minds, 2010) Facilities that are below approved standard could also lead to reduction in quality of teaching and learning in school resulting to poor pupils academic performance (Uwheraka 2005). Crook (2006) examined the relationship between the condition of the physical environment and number of students who passed the Virginia Standard of learning (SOL) examinations are found building condition to be a predictor of student success.

In Nicaragua, 72 percent of children living in a household with electricity were attending school, but only 50 percent for those living in a household without electricity (Saghir…show more content…
The presence of high-quality scientific research institutions that can generate the basic knowledge needed to build the new technologies; extensive collaboration in research and technological developments between universities and industry; and the protection of intellectual property (WEF, 2015 report). Although the institutional research policy is based on academic freedom (Policy on Research Ethics 2006, 1), it is also based on a vision towards the university in the service of humanity (Research Policy 2006, 3). Thus the Institutional Research Plan (2007) indicates that research should develop knowledge, skills and values necessary for developing the
