Student Concerns Over Drinking In School, Water That Is

Posted: Updated:

A new study finds most schools are meeting the requirements of a government mandate to provide free, clean drinking water to students at lunchtime.

The study found that most schools provide drinking fountains in the cafeteria, water pitchers on lunch tables, or free bottled water -- but there are some issues.  

Water fountains may not be best in elementary schools because students aren't always allowed to get up get  get a drink. And many middle and high school students voiced concerns about the cleanliness of drinking fountains, along with the quality of the water.
