Each school is also identified on Google Maps and given a national rank in comparison to other schools. You can enter the name of any school to see its details or select a particular state to see all its schools.
Detailed listings of each school shows how bad the exposure is to cancer-causing toxics and other toxic chemicals. The t0ol also identifies top chemicals that are most responsible for toxicity outside that school and top polluters responsible for toxins outside the school.
