Government is set to make schools greener

The House recently passed a $6.4 billion dollar package to make ecological friendly schools. That's wonderful news! Hopefully the Senate will follow suit and this gets put into law.

"The typical green school saves $100,000 a year on direct operating expenses. In school terms, that's enough to hire two new teachers, purchase 200 new computers or 5,000 textbooks," Gutter said.

Sure, it's a little expensive, but if they do it right and do it efficiently, it may even pay for itself in the long run. By updating the infrastructure it will give our schools a better safer environment for learning. Read more here.
