Abstract: The editor notes in her foreword that every generation encounters unique problems unknown to previous generations. "Parents, teachers, administrators, and school boards across the country should be concerned about the effect of the indoor environment on teaching and learning." She notes further: "I hope this handbook will help patients who became sick due to the indoor environment in their school understand that they are not alone, and that it will be a catalyst for change that will alleviate some of the discomfort teachers, students, and other school staff experience because of unhealthy environmental conditions at school".
