Well, I knew it would happen.Summer, my seven-year-olddaughter’s favorite time of theyear, is coming to an end. Thoughts of going back-to-schoolweigh on both our minds. Traditionally, August is the monthwhen you see all the lists of “w h atto”and “what not to”buy forschool supplies. Been there, donethat many times over. This year I found myself wondering about what might behappening in the schoolsthemselves in “going green’terms. So for this special“schools”issue of Going Green,we take a look at:How local independent andprivate schools are incorporating sustainability right into theircurricula, campus activities andm o re .How a group of enterprising students and teachers arereinventing the school clubconcept to include e-clubs in themix.How grant money has helpedprovide training and educationopportunities in the renewableenergy field for many dislocated,unemployed workers.
