Greening America's schools: the environmental sustainability movement in K-12 education.
Washington, DC
Abstract: I delighted to announce that my new book, Greening America′s Schools: The Environmental Sustainability Movement in K-12 Education, has been published by NAIS. Since concluding my career as a school head, I have devoted my energies to ″growing greener schools″ to help address the significant environmental challenges we face, and I many will have interest in the work.

The book describes environmental sustainability in our schools through profiles of 50 private and public schools across the country that have gone green. It shows how schools can partner with colleges, universities, science museums, and outdoor education programs to enhance their environmental education programs. And students describe the profound, positive impact green schools can have on their education and their development as global citizen leaders.

This book also provides a roadmap on how to foster sustainable schools for the 21st century, ones that use resources efficiently, provide a healthy environment, teach environmental literacy, offer nutritious food, and prepare student leaders. There are extensive resources to support the continuing process of going green. The benefits of green schools are clear in the ″triple bottom line″: they save money, strengthen achievement, and improve health.

I hope that you might consider buying the book; please know that all proceeds go to cover the costs of publication. If you would like to order copies, please click here or use this URL:; those who are not NAIS members need only click on ″register now″ to place an order.
