For a Healthy Home, We Must Change Our Education Priorities
Greenwood, Len
FORUM: for promoting 3-19 comprehensive education, v62 n2 p243-250 2020
In this article, the author discusses the need for a complete refocusing of education throughout the world, prioritizing environmental education in all K-12 schools. He provides a summary of his Green Career Program and the many extensions it encompassed. The program endorses the importance of creating student voice, critical thinking and the education of a New Green Workforce which prioritizes caring for the health of the planet. The author believes that the Green New Deal cannot function if educational priorities are not rethought (environmental education throughout the curriculum), and presents his thoughts on the state of the planet and assisting youth to shape their future.
