Some good news for New York public schools   Leave a comment

I’ve discussed the problem of PCB contamination in New York public schools in two previous blog posts. Today I learned that political pressure is causing officials to shorten their 10 year timeline for replacing contaminated light fixtures to a 2 year timeline. On Friday, the Environmental Protection Agency said the plans to replace contaminated lighting fixtures in New York City public schools should be handled more quickly and more comprehensively. Also a letter signed by 41 of 51 city council members voiced similar criticisms and pleaded for a more expedient solution. Although there is no official solution yet, I remain optimistic that as more people make their voices heard, New York City will do what’s right and help save children from inhaling toxins for another 10 years.
