Also, in 2017, The Healthy Buildings Team at Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health released the report Schools for Health: Foundations for Student Success, which clearly demonstrates that health is foundational to student thinking and performance. The report synthesizes more than 30 years of scientific research findings from over 250 research articles and more than 70 health and performance metrics about the impacts of indoor environmental quality in schools.
