Claire L. Barnett, MBA is founder and Executive Director of the Healthy Schools Network, a national environmental health research, education, and advocacy organization and the Coordinator of the national Coalition for Healthier Schools.

Among the landmark policy reforms: the New York State Board of Regents’ guiding principles and comprehensive actions for school environmental quality (1995); laws to improve indoor environmental quality in schools in New York City and state; fostering reform coalitions in dozens of states; award-winning guides to empower parents and others to take constructive actions to reduce risks; fostering the green cleaning/healthy products in schools movement; and federally, securing over $6B for school repairs and new authorizations for US EPA and Education.
