With sending your children off to school can come worries about bullies, crossing streets, competition, and stress -- not to mention health. As we learn more about the school environment, it appears that measles may not be the only malady facing school children. This site from the Minnesota Department of Health, offers a comprehensive look at the hazards children face in their environment. Included at the site are discussions of lead in school drinking water, pesticides in schools, air quality in schools, mold in schools, and much more. Each link to these subjects offers a non-technical, yet comprehensive description of the issue as well as an easily printable fact sheet in the pdf format. This site should be of interest to anyone wanting to understand the environmental health issues that children face.
