Because of your involvement with educating children I have taken the liberty of sending you the link below of a short NARRATED ANIMATION, which I hope you will share with other teachers, regarding Indoor Air Quality in classrooms and its’ affect on children.
The animation directs itself to the vent ducts only, but the problem goes much deeper than that. While the ventilation system does emit pollutants into the classrooms the rooms are filled with what is called off gassing. These off gasses are Formaldehyde, Urea, Toluene, Chloride, Mold Spores and others that attack the bodies’ immune system in different ways. Cleaning the vent duct, suggested by the EPA, does not eliminate the problem because even a Hepa filter becomes a breeding ground for the microscopic pathogens (mycotoxins). The remediation attempts by way of tearing out the sheetrock in a polluted classroom or any other structure, if anything, compounds the problem because it releases the mold spores into the air and then the return air duct now transfers them throughout the entire school, making a bad situation worse.
It is disgraceful that the teachers and the students have to be subjected to living each school day in a polluted environment that constantly attacks the immune system and breaks it down over time. There is voluminous scientific evidence that a students learning capacity is diminished in a polluted environment. We have reproduced many of them onto a disc that we would happily share with you.
For more information about the solution please call us at (909) 466-8101 or email me at [email protected].

I am researching the klan for my thesis at the university of sussex, england and so am in desperate need for some aid.
thanking you greatly

anonymoususer writes “Anonymous User writes “I think you may be looking for the missing money in Broward and Miami-Dade School Districts in the wrong places.
(1) You need to ask yourself why do School Board Members own a Private Corporation called Miami-Dade School Board Foundation, Inc. that leases buildings to the School District.
Why is the School District paying lease payments on schools that were built and paid for by taxpayer money?
(2) Now ask yourself if the School District sold the school to the Private Leasing Corporation owned, for the most part, by the School Board members, where did the money go from the sale?
(3) Then the Big Question!!! How do you sell a school building paid for with taxpayer money to the Board of Directors of the School District who then go out and borrow out the equity and pledge future COPs to make the payments?
The dollar amount of these transactions is staggering. In Miami-Dade the sale leaseback scheme runs approximately $2 Billion plus dollars per year with COPs pledged on a roll over for ten years equaling $20 billion.
In Broward it is somewhat less only $1 billion per year and $10 billion over 10 years.
This is a lot of money by anyone’s figures. If the lease payments were just portables there is not enough portables in the entire State to spread 3 billion dollars, nor are they enough busses to make this wash.
The schools that are in need of repair never get fixed. The School District do not own the buildings so why should they pay for repairs. The Private Corporation owned by the Board Members own the buildings along with the Bank.
The interest alone on this type of transaction is unbelievable so there is small wonder the schools do not have enough money to give teacher raises or buy proper supplies for the students.”“

anonymoususer writes “Anthony Stratton writes ” I’m a grad student at Ball State, studying elementary education. I recently did a class social studies project with learning centers. The project involved the Muncie economy and why so many companies have moved their factories to Mexico. I had five centers: one was a web site from the children’s section of the BBC, Newsround, one was a video tape called Commanding Heights. It was about NAFTA and I showed them the part with the presidential debate in 1992 with Ross Perot, George Herbert Walker Bush and Bill Clinton. The other three were articles about: the Indiana brain drain, shifting to a service economy and jobs that require higher education, and the financial doldrums on the south side of Muncie.
On the upside, many of the students said they really enjoyed this new way of doing class and they appreciated that I tried to help them. On the other hand, as this activity progressed, the children became progressively louder and three of the girls got into quite a row with each other. I was chatting with my science professor. She said being able to work in groups is a skill you have to learn. These children do very little in groups, though the 4th grade teachers work in groups. I’m curious for suggestions on improving this type of acitivity and how to teach upper elementary students about working in groups.
Thank you and have an effervescent day.”“
