A new report ranks Kansas near the bottom, when it comes to policies helping students with asthma and food allergies.
The Asthma and Allergy Foundation of America rated states on 18 core standards. It judged Kansas as meeting only seven of them. Kansas especially fell short in protecting indoor air quality, such as the lack of required heating and air conditioning inspections.
Only four states have lower scores than Kansas: Alaska, Georgia, South Dakota and Wyoming. Connecticut, New Jersey and Vermont scored highest among the states.
