~~~ENVIRONMENTAL LITERACY REQUIRED TO GRADUATE FROM MARYLAND HIGH SCHOOLS~~~
In a historic vote, The Maryland State Board of Education provided specific guidance to all public schools to require that each student be environmentally literate before he or she graduates from high school. This makes Maryland the first state in the country to approve a graduation requirement in environmental literacy.

“This is a momentous day not only for Maryland but for educators across the country who are watching what Maryland does, and hoping to increase outdoor learning in their states,” Don Baugh, director of the environmental advocacy group No Child Left Inside Coalition (NCLI), which pushed for the vote, said in a release.

“The No Child Left Inside Act would increase environmental education opportunities for students across the country,” Congressman John Sarbanes of Maryland, author of the bill, said. “Such opportunities are essential to grow the next generation of scientists, promote environmental stewardship, and encourage Americans to live healthier lifestyles.”

The Maryland No Child Left Inside Coalition is now over 220 organizations strong, representing over 631,000 Marylanders. The Coalition represents education, environment, recreation, religion, youth, health and business interests across Maryland.

The No Child Left Inside Coalition (NCLI) represents over 1900 organizations (over 50 million individuals) in support of legislation and efforts to get kids back outside and reconnected to nature.

Environmental literacy is included in the federal budget for the first time in history and environmental education has been included in the U.S. Dpt. of Education’s “Blueprint for Reform.” The Elementary and Secondary Education Act (ESEA) (aka: No Child Left Behind) is being rewritten and is expected to be reauthorized in 2011. The Coalition continues to advocate for the inclusion of language from the NCLI Act in the reauthorized version of ESEA.

Agreed.

I'm all for kids learning about the environment, but not under the umbrella (at the expense) of yet another federal mandate targeting our youth.

This can (and should) be taught in science.

Get em young!

Require that they prove they've been properly indoctrinated before you let them subject themselves to the wage-slave trade!

More pseudoscience being shoved down children's throats, now we can spend some extra FRN's and force them to join the envirocult or ELSE!
