Why do green schools matter?
There are many reasons, including:
Savings from energy efficiency can mean more funds for core programs.
Healthy and comfortable learning environments can improve student performance and reduce sick days among staff and students alike.
Green schools provide models of sustainable behavior for students and communities – perhaps the first such experience for many. The facilities themselves become important tools for learning.
They reduce strain on valuable and diminishing natural resources.
They assist state, national and international efforts to reduce fossil fuel dependence and greenhouse gas emissions.
They produce students who are not the green leaders of tomorrow, but of today.
