Abstract: Lead is one of the most damaging substances that humans have caused to be dispersed in our environment. However, there are actions everyone can take to reduce vastly risks of poisoning; recent laws have focused on promoting these preventative measures, as the success of these actions depends on whether people are aware of them. There are tens of thousands of children nationwide with blood lead levels considered unsafe by health experts. Strong community awareness of current laws can potentially curb the incidence of lead poisoning in homes and schools, but a small survey of school districts in a sample state indicates that the level of awareness seems less than what is necessary for the law to achieve its purpose.
