Abstract: This report indicated that staff and students are exposed to many pollutants which originate both within their schools and in the neighbouring communities. The sources of pollution range fron industrial emissions and automobile exhaust outside, to painting, cleaning chemicals, art and science materials, tobacco smoke, and even chalk dust, inside. Some students and staff are experiencing acute adverse effects from such exposures, while others do not appear to be suffering, at least in the short term, from the same exposures.
Additional Notes: This reference contains approximately 140 pages of abstracted bibliographic references up to the date of publication. This study for the Board of Education for the City of Toronto was a precursor to the Interagency Group on Pollution and Education, a network of interested school board officials who conducted seminars in the mid-to-late 1980s and met together to share experiences related to indoor air quality problems in schools.
