Schools and the Energy Crisis. A Research Report.
National School Boards Association, Washington, DC.
This report summarizes information from 43 States and from the District of Columbia and Puerto Rico; and from 55 local school districts. The majority of the information in the report was provided by State school boards associations and NSBA Direct Affiliate districts. Survey results indicate that (1) nationwide, at both the State and school district levels, schools have been cooperative with requests to constrain energy use and willing to institute voluntary measures to conserve energy; (2) the energy crisis has had different effects on schools in different regions of the country, and shortages of fuel for buses (and escalating prices for available fuel) are nationwide; (3) with few exceptions, the emphasis in schools has been on developing short-range methods to cope with fuel shortages; and (4) more often than not, respondents discussed energy conservation measures, but failed to discuss the character of actual energy shortages. State school boards association responses to the energy crisis vary. A few exercise active State leadership (Nebraska and New Jersey); most are cooperating with the State government agencies (Iowa and Michigan); some have chosen only to keep aware of the State situation (Alabama and Nevada).
