The Green Obligation
Adams, Cameron
American School & University, v80 n1 p36-39 Sep 2007
As the green movement grows, studies provide conclusive evidence about the benefits of environmentally conscious practices indoors and outdoors. Schools are no exception. Many of these studies demonstrate how poor indoor air quality (IAQ) in schools adversely affects many of the nation's 55 million students with health problems such as asthma and flu. These IAQ-related health issues can result in sick days, reduced performance and lower test scores. In this article, the author discusses the benefits of improving air quality in schools and offers a few green steps on how facility managers can improve IAQ and student health.
