"If we want children to flourish, to become truly empowered, then let us allow them to love the Earth before we ask them to save it." --David Sobel
I've put up a new post on my blog Postcards from the Outback where I think about my third-grade son's recent environmental educationexperience in school. If we're concerned about our children's connection to nature, then we have to be very careful not to let well-intentioned efforts lead to disengagement. Drop in and add your thoughts. How can we advocate for age-appropriate and effective environmental education in our schools?
