School Mold Problems

It seemed like a harmless enough idea, and a good project for Mrs. Roueche's environmental science class in Greenville, S.C.: scrape mold samples from the ceiling tiles at Eastside High and send them off to be analyzed. Her own children, who attended Buena Vista Elementary just down the road, had been sick for years.  First came the nosebleeds, then the headaches, chronic sinus infections and coughing. Nobody suspected the cause might be mold growing in the school building until The Greenville News reported that the highly toxic mold Stachybotrys had been found at Buena Vista.
