If Your Child Says School Makes Him Sick - He Might Be Right
Date:12/8/2008

Lois Gibbs, Executive Director of CHEJ. "Children are required by law to go to school. Schools must be a safe place for children to learn and play, not a place that endangers their health and ability to learn. Asthma is a direct result of air pollution and asthma is the number one reason for school absences."

"Yes, we're going to be putting more money into school construction," President-Elect Obama promised in a "Meet the Press" interview taped Saturday in Chicago. The President-Elect's commitment to new schools must be matched with a commitment to building schools in safe locations that will not expose our children to hazardous levels of air pollution. A first priority of the Obama Administration should be to move the school siting guidelines to the top of the EPA's agenda.

Child Proofing Our Communities (CPOC), a CHEJ program to prevent environmental health harm to children, developed the only existing National Model School Siting Policy guidelines to help state groups advance protective school siting policies for their states: http://www.childproofing.org/documents/school_siting_model_legislation.pdf
