Hard to breathe: Report finds most NYC public schools with worst ventilation woes are in areas lacking green technology


Analysis of recent data collected by New York City school ventilation audits found that 70% of public schools with the worst air issues are in areas lacking green technology.

Moreover, the study found that 52% of these schools are located in Brooklyn.

A report released on June 1 by ALIGN, an environmental organization, established a blueprint for New York City Mayor Eric Adams to create Green, Healthy Schools by prioritizing the needs of these schools — namely, providing effective ventilation and quality air monitoring to minimize the spread and transmission of COVID-19.
