Currently there is a big push on in environmental education circles for the “No Child Left Inside” legislation that would provide federal funding for environmental education that is currently getting squeezed out due to the “No Child Left Behind” (NCLB) program. Schools more and more are teaching to the testing requirements of the NCLB leaving little time for the sensory environmental education experiences that are so necessary to the development of a heart-mind connection to the natural world. Without this connection, the next generation will not develop the necessary skills and environmental values to sustain environmental friendly behaviors to improve and conserve the Earth’s resources.
