Clean Air for Schools and Universities
In schools and universities around the world students are being exposed to air pollution that exceeds safe and legal levels. In most cases, action to tackle outdoor air pollution will come too late for young pupils, who risk lifelong health impacts following prolonged exposure. Evidence is growing that poor indoor air quality leads to increases in absenteeism and drops in concentration and productivity. Clear the air with Radic8 and help give children and young adults the best chance to succeed.
The Importance of Clean Air in the Education Sector
A study conducted in the UK found that teachers catch twice as many colds as other professionals, each taking an average of 8 days off per year with a minor ailment. Pupils are often sent in to school with coughs and colds, which then easily spread through the air to their classmates and teachers, and from them to family and friends.
The cost of finding replacement teachers can be high on both the school’s funds and the pupil’s performance. A study by Harvard found that if a teacher with years of experience missed up to just ten days of school per year, their pupils would gain results expected from a new and inexperienced teacher.
