Back to school: How Air Quality Affects Students
Air quality is a major concern for children because they tend to spend more time outside than adults. Kids play outside more often which means they’re exposed to more pollution—including pollution from cars and trucks on busy roads near their schools.
Breathe Better Air
Breathing in dirty air is not good for anyone. Adults experience weakened immune systems and allergies, while children experience developmental delays and respiratory issues, among other issues. While all of us want clean, fresh air to breathe, many of us find that our work or school does not provide this for us, and we are forced to breathe in polluted air every day.
What Is Your School’s IAQ?
What matters most when it comes to our children’s education? Quality schools, quality teachers and abundant resources. But what about quality air? Now more than ever Indoor Air Quality (IAQ) really matters. As a result, government agencies, parents and schools are giving attention to the quality of the air our children breathe.

So the quality of the indoor air we breathe really matters! Indoor air quality has a major impact on our health, both short and long term. The good news is there is something we can do about it.
