No child left inside

created on: 08/03/08

Have any of you been following the national No Child Left Inside initiative focused on U.S. House Resolution 3036?

From what I've been able to learn about the Act, it seems that it could pump a lot of money into environmental education requirements and environmental education research without ever getting many kids outside, or at least without getting kids to get outside once they are no longer required to do it for class.

Am I missing something? Have I misinterpretted the Act?

If you haven't heard anything about 3036, here's the website of the No Child Left Inside Coalition.

The purpose of H.R. 3036, the No Child Left Inside (NCLI) Act of 2008, is to support local and statewide efforts to expand and enhance environmental education and to provide enhanced professional development opportunities in environmental education.
