A good indoor air quality in schools is particularly important, as several studies indicate that a school’s physical environment can play a major role in academic performance.
Leaky roofs, problems with heating, ventilation and air conditioning systems, insufficient cleaning or excessive use of cleaning chemicals and other maintenance issues can trigger a host of health problems including asthma and allergies that increase absenteeism and reduce academic performance.
Indoor pollutants can be particularly harmful for students already affected by allergies or asthma.
Improvements in school environmental quality can enhance academic performance, as well as teacher and staff productivity. A healthy indoor environment helps a school to achieve its primary mission to offer high quality services in education.
