Effects of School Indoor Environmental Quality
According to the EPA and the World Health Organization, because children are rapidly developing both cognitively and physically they are more vulnerable to risks in their environment. At the same time, their immune systems and other defense mechanisms are less effective. High performing schools with quiet, properly ventilated classrooms and healthy air provide teachers and students the physical environments that promote learning. This white paper explores the effects of indoor environmental quality in schools and some of the solutions and technology being implemented to improve it.
