New York is a special focus of our work. It is the country's third-largest K-12 public education system.

With support from a broad-based coalition led by Healthy Schools Network, New York State has adopted environmental reform policies embodied in a five-point, child-centered set of "Guiding Principles for School Environmental Quality". Healthy Schools Network has since worked to secure new laws, funding, and regulations to promote healthier school environments, including the measures for occupant health in schools under renovation, notice of pesticide use, bans on arsenic and elemental mercury, and an executive order on "green" cleaning products.
