Savvy Schools Are Going Green
St. Gerard, Vanessa
Education Digest: Essential Readings Condensed for Quick Review, v73 n5 p32-33 Jan 2008
This article describes how the green phenomenon is spreading, especially among schools, which have found that not only are they being environmentally friendly, they are also saving big money. Green buildings focus on efficiency and renewable energy, water stewardship, environmentally preferable building materials and specifications, waste reduction, toxics, and indoor air quality. Green schools have cited increased hands-on learning opportunities for students as another benefit of going green.
