Description
 
The second installment in a series of reports addressing potential environmental health threats in schools and the follow-up publication to "Poisoned Schools: Invisible Threats, Visible Actions."

"Creating Safe Learning Zones: Invisible Threats, Visible Actions" focuses on the need for protective laws concerning the site selection and construction of new school buildings. The report presents data from five states: California, Massachusetts, Michigan, New Jersey and New York. The data shows the number of schools located on or near hazardous chemical waste sites or other contaminated sites, such as landfills, waste treatment plants, military sites and others that may pose both environmental and health risks.

This guide describes:

-children's special vulnerabilities
-the school siting process
-examples of schools built on or near contaminated land.
-model school siting legislation to help local communities promote local and state laws and policies that protect children's health
-action steps that parents may take to ensure their children are not placed in harm's way.
