Abstract

This study reviewed the previous field studies on Indoor Air Quality (IAQ) in school buildings in order to identify present IAQ issues in high-performance, urban schools. The present review found that despite early efforts to improve IAQ in schools, the majority of IAQ studies in schools still showed unacceptable levels of common indoor air pollutants. In addition, school children in cities were exposed to higher levels of outdoor air pollutants than in rural areas, while facing the same internally generated IAQ issues. The possible confounding of these two effects in urban schools requires further study.
