URL: http://www.epa.gov/iaq/schools/images/iaq_and_student_performance.pdf

Abstract: Evidence continues to emerge showing that poor indoor air quality (IAQ) can cause illness requiring absence from school, and can cause acute health symptoms that decrease performance while at school. In addition, recent data suggest that poor IAQ may directly reduce a person's ability to perform specific mental tasks requiring concentration, calculation or memory. This report from US EPA identifies causes of poor air quality, effects on performance and relationships between filtration, housekeeping and HVAC maintenance. A lengthy list of references is provided for additinal research.
