Subject: Re: Respirators on High School Kids
Comments: To: Gordon Miller

I haven't joined in the discussion but I do think two points need to be made. First - I concur whole heartedly that general experiments in high school or college - should be developed using green chemistry techniques. You can substitute many different experiments that teach the concepts with out having to resort to materials that MUST use PPE. HOWEVER - I do think it is an excellent idea to have them use PPE even though PPE is not necessarily a requirement as it teaches good laboratory practice.

Respirators don't belong on underage kids. Change the experimental design. I'm sure any number of attorneys will be happy to instruct the school about this in a court of law, preferably with the help of a jury to boost their take. What I wrote earlier about respirators applies to college students and, maybe, faculty.
