A friend brought this article to my attention today. I'm hoping it gets plenty of coverage here. The second link is for a map showing the locatons of schools likely to have very bad outdoor air quality; there's a great big red dot right over Peoria. At the very least it would be nice to see some actual air quality testing.
The specific schools listed: Blaine-Sumner, Franklin-Edison, Garfield, Irving, Kingman, Peoria Alternative, Peoria High, Roosevelt Magnet, St. Mark's, Valeska Hinton, White, and Whittier.
What do you think about this? Should your city be testing the air quality standards-especially around your child's school? Would you be willing to pay more taxes to see this happen?
