Why is healthy air in schools important?

Kids (and teachers!) spend a good deal of time in school. When school air quality is unhealthy, learners suffer. Research shows that poor indoor air quality in schools is linked to decreased concentration and poor test results. Keeping school air clean helps our children perform to their full potential. Is your child’s school promoting a healthy environment? Are there steps you can take to make your child’s school environment even healthier?
