Move to 'Green' school buses could boost kids' class attendance

"Air pollution can even affect those without asthma," Pedde added. "It has been linked to upper respiratory infections, pneumonia and other types of respiratory illness, so it might be impacting a larger student body than just asthmatic students."

To see whether cleaner buses cut down on student absences, Pedde and her colleagues examined data from the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency's School Bus Rebate Program.

      Investing in these buses contributes to reducing greenhouse gas emissions and improving air quality in communities. It is important to continue promoting sustainable transportation solutions and creating healthy and safe environments for our children to learn and grow.

        The old school buses should be replaced or retrofitted now that there is a lot of funds in the U.S. No need to play around with children's health. Go "green".

          This must be implemented whether it boosts class attendance or not, health should always come first. Greet intent by the President.

            Great step! But i don't think if this will boost class attendance as per their expectation!

              @gorffly_mokua The study has shown that the schools that replaced the old buses had better attendance.
