Teachers Go GREEN in Asheville and All Across the USA but Do They Pass the Green HOME Test?

green school  /grEn skül / n. a school building or facility that creates a healthy environment that is conducive to learning while saving energy, resources and money-- 

Not long ago teachers across the USA helped pass a resolution: "WHEREAS, green and sustainable schools are new or renovated schools that create a healthy environment that is conducive to learning while saving energy resources and money. 

 Green schools focus on improvements in site selection, daylighting, indoor air quality, thermal comfort, acoustics and classroom design - all of which have an important impact on a child's ability to learn and a teacher's ability to teach ..." 

You can see the entire resolution here: http://www.buildgreenschools.org/news/news_story_4.html 

Teachers are SMART!  So that is why  I am wondering is how many teachers take their own advice. How many teachers (new, old and/or retired) are involved in regreeningtheir homes? How many plan to  invest in a new Green-Built  or what we call here in Asheville, NC  WNC HealthyBuilt® Home? 

I know one for sure. That would be me. 

Ask your teacher friends and let me know who "passes" the GREEN test. . .

It seems like the following:

 "daylighting, indoor air quality, thermal comfort, acoustics and classroom design - all of which have an important impact on a child's ability to learn and a teacher's ability to teach ..." 

should go without saying.

We will get there, eventually.

JT~ 

Very good point you make...that we should EXPECT the best environment for our students and teachers! As you say, "

 "daylighting, indoor air quality, thermal comfort, acoustics and classroom design - all of which have an important impact on a child's ability to learn and a teacher's ability to teach ..." 

should go without saying...."
