When classrooms are too hot, students can't learn and teachers can't teach.
Extreme temperature isn’t just an inconvenience. As a study conducted by researchers at the University of Tulsa’s Indoor Air Program shows, it has a direct impact on student performance.
Further studies indicate that lower classroom temperatures and improved air ventilation improve learning ability and student performance by as much as 10 to 20 percent.
Overheated schools also waste energy and cost school districts money.
We have created several resources that you can use to monitor and report classroom temperatures. If your classroom is too hot, we want to know about it so we can use real-world stories to help get new classroom temperature regulations in place.
