Toxic Inside Schools

Our topic of focus for our infographic was public elementary schools that were tested for lead. After doing research and looking at multiple statistics. I was astounded to find out how some elementary schools tested as high as 9,800 micrograms per/sq feet of lead. The EPA states that it is hazardous for there to be any more than 40 micrograms of lead. This is crucial because children who attend elementary schools who are at least 6 years old are especially vulnerable.
