MA: Quality of air at schools in doubt | James Vaznis | The Boston Globe

March 3, 2017

A city report says that more than half of Boston’s schools are plagued by poor or deficient air quality, which studies have linked to low student achievement and high rates of asthma.

The findings, released Wednesday, are based on an examination of schools’ ventilation systems or the lack of them, and other factors that can affect air quality, including the inability to open windows.

Air quality itself was not measured.

The examination revealed that more than half of the schools have inadequate ventilation and some need new roofs or major repairs to them. Poor air circulation can cause rooms to become hot, humid, and stuffy, which can trigger asthma attacks. Leaky roofs can cause mold.
