How Air Quality Affects Students

Back to school: How Air Quality Affects Students

by | Mar 11, 2023

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.

Studies show that air pollution may cause asthma symptoms in children who already have asthma or make it worse in kids who don’t have asthma but live in areas with high levels of pollution. Air pollution has also been linked with other chronic conditions like diabetes and heart disease later in life.

Poor indoor air quality can have a significant impact on the health and well-being of students. It is important to protect them from the harmful effects of poor air quality by making sure they have adequate access to clean air. Here are some ways in which poor air quality can affect students:

1. Ability to focus

Poor indoor air quality can cause students to feel lethargic, which can make it difficult for them to do their schoolwork or participate in class activities. Students who experience poor air quality will often have trouble focusing on their classes. This can lead to absenteeism and low performance on tests.

2. Respiratory problems

Students who suffer from asthma or other respiratory conditions will be affected by poor air quality because it may trigger an asthma attack or make their condition worse.

Students who have allergies may find their symptoms worsen when exposed to poor air quality. This could make it difficult for them to attend a school or participate in activities outside of school because they will be unable to breathe properly.

3. Affect teachers and staff

Poor indoor air quality can make it hard for teachers to teach because they might be less effective at explaining concepts or guiding students through exercises if they feel sick or tired from breathing bad air.

With so many kids and staff members packed into one building, there’s a huge risk that the air quality can become compromised. And that’s not good for anyone—not the teachers, not the students, and not even the janitorial staff who have to clean up after them all day!

So what can schools do? How can they ensure that their students are getting clean air?

The answer is simple: by using White Coat Air Disinfectors. White Coat Air Disinfectors help to make sure that the air quality in your school is as good as it can be by removing harmful particles from the air before they can get into anyone’s lungs or cause other problems. This ensures that when students come into contact with these particles, they won’t get sick or develop any health issues later on down the road due to exposure during their time at school.
