Summary of On-Going Federal Research Into the Effects of Environmental Quality in Schools on the Health or Performance of Students and Teachers

Section 5414 of the No Child Left Behind Act of 2002 mandates that the U.S. Department of Education will design a national study of the health and learning impacts of environmentally unhealthy public school buildings on students and teachers. The Department of Education, in order to avoid duplication of effort and to obtain information about possible approaches for the study, wishes to investigate ongoing studies that relate to the study of unhealthy school buildings, especially those being sponsored by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, the U.S. Department of Energy, and the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services.
