It's four years since the government scrapped a major programme to rebuild hundreds of schools. Some transferred to a replacement scheme, but for several in the region no plans have been drawn up - and they don't know when work will actually begin.
In total - 13 schools in poor condition are due to be rebuilt in Kent - they include Smarden Primary, Westlands Primary and Aylesham Primary.
Kent cabinet member for education, Cllr Roger Gough, says progress has been slow - and things would have progressed much more quickly if rebuilds had been organised locally.
The government though says work is ahead of schedule and all schools will be completed by 2017. Our social affairs correspondent Christine Alsford reports on the conditions some school are having to cope with while they wait.
