Modular 'temporary' classrooms

Perhaps these questions will engender some hate mail, but . . .

Can somebody tell me what's wrong with adding modular classrooms to existing schools?

Is there any convincing evidence that students learn less in such classrooms?

Aren't such classrooms at least as likely to meet modern standards for educational needs, safety, etc., as the classrooms in our many decades old, often poorly maintained, decaying schools?

Since modular classrooms seem to be both relatively inexpensive and quick to erect, shouldn't we make more use of them where needed, so that we may use our limited school resources to hire more and better teachers or purchase more up-to-date educational materials?
