A former elementary school principal in New York was determined to transform his troubled inner-city school into model of education, but still faced many behavioral and learning issues with a large population of his students.
It wasn’t until he discovered that many of the children lived in homes where lead-based paint was beginning to deteriorate. Lead poisoning can result in brain damage, behavioral problems, and even a lower IQ. Nearly 41% of all the students in the elementary school had blood lead levels of 10 micrograms/deciliter.
An astounding 100% of all the special education students had been poisoned with lead at a young age.
