Millions of children and adults across the nation spend their days in school buildings, and they need safe, healthy environments to thrive, learn, and succeed. This book explores the school environment using the methods and perspectives of environmental health science. Its 30 chapters cover
all aspects of the school environment, including air quality, toxic hazards, food, physical activity, violence, transportation, disaster preparedness, health services, and program management, making it the first book to offer such comprehensive coverage. It is evidence-based, readable, generously
illustrated, and practical. The editors are physicians trained in pediatrics, occupational and environmental medicine, epidemiology, and medical toxicology, and the authors are experts in their fields drawn from across the United States and abroad.
