To the Editor In a recent article, Dudovitz et al1 prospectively investigated the association of adolescent substance use with exposure to high-performing schools. This article explores education as a key social determinant of health and attempts to expound on how school environments can influence health. The authors explain that previous studies suggest exposure to better educational environments can improve health behaviors, but these studies do not examine the transition to high-performing schools or provide data about other factors in adolescent health.
