E-M:/ What BWL ought to spearhead for Lansing

Enviro-Mich message from jmgear <jmgear@acd.net>

. . . especially for the Lansing Center (losing money) and Lansing Schools (really losing a lot of money)

If the Lansing Schools want to really recapture all the missing students, then they should start
environmental magnet schools at every level (elementary, middle, HS), where every aspect of the
program would focus on understanding humans and our place in the natural world (and our
responsibility to it). They would have abundant great art, literature, drama, to share; endless
opportunities for making math and science relevant and interesting; great service learning projects,
countless chances for making students engaged and involved self-guided learners, rather than
passive consumers. Such schools would have a surplus of adults seeking to volunteer, which
is about the #1 need for saving the schools (reconnecting them to the community).
