An employee from the Pleasant View School in Providence has informed Young of high rates of breast cancer and other cancers in this school. A foundation crack that may have been releasing toxins has also been reported. Young said, “I want to voice a request for investigation into the high rate of breast cancer among the teachers at this school as well the other schools constructed on toxic land and or dumps. I also seek testing of what is reported to be a failing ventilation system for PCBs and other toxins at the Pleasant View School.” D.E.M has confirmed that the Pleasant View School was built on a dump, also that trash was used to level the property off for the construction of the Pleasant View School.
