A new special in time for Earth Day 2010, Growing Greener Schools:
Today's focus on green building is giving us a better understanding of the potential impacts our school buildings have, not only on the environment, but on our childrens - and their teachers' - health and development. Armed with this new knowledge, many school districts across the country are taking "green" to a new level. Considering that one in five Americans spend their days in K-12 schools, this green-school movement is positioned to become a significant contributor to improving our nation's environmental and public health. The challenge, however, is in establishing green school definitions and standards that will meet the needs of under-represented people, struggling schools, diverse communities and geographical regions.
