As a new school year begins, a survey of 9th to 12th graders reveals that unclean school restrooms cause them to have a negative perception of their institution and its leaders. More than half (68%) of students say school restrooms that are poorly maintained or unclean show the school doesn’t care about its students, reflects poor school management and lowers their overall opinion of the school. In fact, nearly half of students describe the condition of their school restrooms as poor or fair.
The findings are part of the Healthy Hand Washing Survey conducted by Bradley Corp. The research asked students across the country about their school restrooms and hand washing habits.
