"England ‘outlier’ in back to school approach"


"an official delivery schedule revealed just 517 devices would be distributed this week, all to London schools. Just 4 per cent of the devices promised are due for distribution over the next three weeks"

"Peter Kyle MP, Labour’s shadow schools minister, said the lack of carbon dioxide monitors distributed to schools and the lack of evaluation of existing trials of air purifiers was “too little action, and far too late”."

Agreed. And parents know it. ⏬⏬⏬
New York City vowed to equip each of its 56,000 public school classrooms with two HEPA air purifiers by September... Other schools opted to build their own Corsi-Rosenthal air filter box, a DIY alternative that costs a fraction of normal air filters.

At least we're working with others to get stuff done.

Excellent suggestion from @ReicherStephen that we should see ventilation grants for homes and businesses.

What of schools? The Condition Improvement Fund does not currently cover ventilation. It should.

Ventilation is a particular issue within schools, as highlighted here by @RCPCH_and_Us

IAQ for schools requires improvement – this is a H&S matter for which Local Authorities and Academy Trusts are responsible @LGANews
