No. In my schools at least, they usually choose remolding or new computers (for the teachers who used them to play on during class).
I could justify a remodel if the school's crowded or items are in need of repair but your right remodels happen way too often. Hell even my uni is guilty of this, redoing a new student union building, that in all honesty....doesn't need redone at all. It is perfectly serviceable as is but they want to attract more lucrative out of staters. (We have a not so surprising number of people from Maryland, but also some eyebrow raisers like folks from Ohio, NJ and NY) Still a waste of money.
As for computer purchasing...its a double edged sword...buy computers that are more expensive yet can last longer and people would bitch after hearing "blah blah school district spent 1,200 dollars on each Dell..." yet if they buy disposable el cheapo machines and replace em more often, people bitch more.
I think that they should augment computer purchases with hardware upgrades in between, like more RAM, etc.
