Renovating and modernizing public schools and updating our environmental education curriculum have enormous potential to create good jobs, save school districts money, and educate students about their natural environment.
Public schools have long been a neglected part of our infrastructure system. It's time to lift them up as of the clean, green, resilient environments we need at the heart of our efforts to rebuild a nation that is better able to address climate change.
Students sitting in classrooms today are the future of the American economy. They will be the ones building, designing, teaching, selling, implementing, and maintaining all the facets of industries that will drive the global economy.
