Resource: IAQ (Indoor Air Quality) in Schools

Reposted from an article by Indoor Air Quality (IAQ) Scientific Findings Resource Bank (IAQ-SFRB)

This section provides an overview of indoor air quality (IAQ) in schools and its influence on the health, performance, and absence of occupants of schools. The review is based on papers published in peer reviewed journals. Most of the research has been performed in public schools, particularly elementary and secondary schools. The review focuses on allergens, volatile organic compounds (VOCs), particles, dampness and mold, and ventilation with outdoor air in schools. Topics not covered in this review include temperature and humidity, lighting, acoustics, and special IAQ issues related to construction and renovation.
