Healthy Habitats for Children.
Wilson, Ruth A.
Early Childhood Education Journal, v23 n4 p235-38 Sum 1996
Discusses the health-related implications of environmental hazards for children. Argues that low-income, minority communities are disproportionately affected, thus spurring the environmental justice movement which calls for equitable dealing with hazards. Suggests that children are at the greatest physical health risk, and that educators are in a unique position to raise awareness of such risks. (SD)
