Concerned over classroom air quality, local groups turn to technology to clear the air

BOSTON — Air quality in older schools in Massachusetts has been a sticking point for teachers’ unions as they face a return to school during a pandemic this fall.

“We’re in pretty bad shape in too many buildings,” Massachusetts Teachers Association president Merrie Najimy told Boston 25 News. “We will not go back into the buildings until they can be demonstrated to be safe, including the air quality level.”

Most districts do not have the budget to completely overhaul their aging systems before the start of school. But Westwood epidemiologist and healthy home consultant Hannah Gardener says there are less pricey options to clear the air.

“Recommendations from the Harvard School of Public Health and other government agencies suggest that air purifiers can be really important,” Gardener said. She told Boston 25 News, by filtering out harsh disinfectants and allergens, purifiers can ensure kids won’t be coughing as much at such a critical time.

Though Gardener says more data is needed to know how well the purifiers can reduce infectiousness, she says interest in the technology is high right now.

“Teachers want air purifiers. Families want air purifiers,” Gardener said. “Extra layers of protection is exactly what people want.”

Gardener says more people want to put individual purifier units in classrooms to improve air quality there. She says she’s even hearing from parent groups that want to crowdsource the purifiers, instead of a typical teacher’s gift, with each family contributing $25 or $30.
