How Green is Your School?

Some of the largest expenses for any school district are the energy costs for electricity, fuel oil or gas for heating, water usage, etc.  A group called The Alliance to Save Energy has a program called Green Schools Program which seeks to reduce energy costs in order to free up more funds for education programs which strengthen academic achievement.  What makes this program interesting to me is that “Green Schools encourages students to apply the lessons of energy-efficiency message in their homes and communities.”  They do this by ” engaging students in creating energy-saving activities in their schools, using hands-on, real-world projects.”  If you would like to explore this further, you can check out their website at The Alliance to Save Energy
