All Children Deserve a Healthy Learning Environment

Children are inherently more vulnerable to environmental hazards because their bodies are still developing.  Substandard environmental conditions in schools, such as insufficient cleaning or inadequate ventilation, can cause serious health problems for children.  Evidence that indoor air quality directly impact health and student academic performance continues to mount.

Indoor air quality refers to those characteristics of the air in indoor environments, such as levels of radon, pollutants, humidity, temperature, etc., that impact the occupants’ health, comfort and ability to perform.
