The Impact of School Buildings on Student Health and Performance: A Call for ResearchLog in to Download
Released February 27, 2012. There is strong evidence to support the notion that school buildings impact student health and their ability to learn, and we know exactly how to ensure that the impacts are positive. For example, we know how to build classrooms that minimize background noise and allow voices to be heard clearly, which will allow students to hear their teachers and protect their aural health. This research report, developed by the McGraw-Hill Research Foundation in partnership with The Center for Green Schools, contains information that is applicable in both public and private schools.
