Asthma is prevalent among youth, with significant morbidity and mortality reported worldwide. Most asthma‐related fatalities are avoidable, and therefore it may be important to increase asthma education for school staff given their frequent and long‐term interactions with youth. The overall aim of asthma education for school staff is to prevent asthma‐related fatalities among students, and to promote effective symptom management for improved child health and educational outcomes.
