This program will benefit the students in several ways. The programs willteach responsibility, life lessons, life skills, sustainable living, cause and effect of ones actions, life cycles, ecosystems and the effect we have on them, theimportance of health, and how students can make a difference. Theseprograms will also teach budgeting and setting up and achieving goals to thestudents. All of these will greatly benefit the students and will allow them tobe more intelligent, and also more aware of their surroundings. I believefirmly that environmental education is the missing link in the educationsystem. The environment has been around for as long as we have been here,thus it has been a critical part of our everyday life. Without the environment we would not have physics, or astronomers, there would be no naturalists inliterature such examples as Henry David Thoreau and Edgar Allan Poe. Therewould also be no understanding of basic biology. This is why this program isso beneficial.If a school is having trouble fitting in fifteen minutes a week to teach solelyenvironmental education, they can easily just add in environmentaleducation in what ever their class discussion for the day is. For example, if the teacher is teaching long division the teacher can easily create a few wordproblems, which involve animal extinction or other environmental topics.This way the time will be benefit ail on a grander scale.These students are our future. And it is never to late to fix a problem, if youare proactive. So let us join now and listen to the voices of the future andincorporate these programs.
