The Role of the Principal in Energy Conservation.
Bamberger, Richard
The principal's role in energy conservation includes being certain that steps have been taken within the school building to effect energy savings, and using his influence to make certain that his school system applies for an Energy Retrofitting Grant under the National Energy Act if appropriate. However, the principal's greater role is to take the lead in assuring that energy conservation is taught within the school. Maple Hill High School in Castleton-on-Hudson, New York, has a course in environmental studies that has changed people's values by involving them in experiential situations. To make such a program successful requires money, supportive administration, and dedicated teachers. The widest ranging benefits will come from infusion units throughout the school system. Promoting education for energy conservation becomes more important than other responsibilities because of its obvious importance in the very survival of mankind. (Author/MLF)
