Classrooms use to have opened windows and lots of fresh air. No more.

Schools are now locked up tighter than drums. Try getting fresh air into that.

Have you noticed that teachers use those Glade Plug-ins or some equally toxic room 'fresheners' in their classrooms?
Mostly because many children aren't bathed often enough and the classrooms stink!

I wouldn't be able to learn in a room with those 'fresheners' because they make me sick.

If your child is constantly sick or not learning....see if the classrooms have those fresheners in them!! I wouldn't be surprised if that was causing a lot of illness and kids were being wrongly diagnosed with learning disabilities because of the chemicals.
