Earth Day 2023

Claire Barnett, Executive Director, Healthy Schools Network, said: “Keep schools open. We strongly support CLEAN AIR IN SCHOOLS for all children on Earth Day and every day. Schools must have clean indoor air to keep children and staff healthy, reduce absenteeism, and to stay open longer when severe weather threatens. We urge President Biden to fully fund Clean Air in Schools at $100M annually. In years past, EPA national and regional grants developed a deep knowledge of the complexities of indoor air and how to improve it to generate learning benefits. Today, with climate disasters and more pandemics ahead, parents, teachers, facility directors, and schools need more guidance and technical support on providing healthful indoor environments in schools. Schools must stay open.”
