No Child Left Inside Act of 2007
Now is the time to let others hear your voice! HR3036, The No Child Left Inside Act, has gained bipartisan support from 28 corresponded. October and November are critical for contacting representatives and encouraging them to make the bill law. The No Child Left Inside Coalition, comprised of over one hundred environmental, educational, and public health organization, has numerous resources available for individuals and organizations who want to learn more and take action.
The NCLI bill would:
- Create a separate Environmental Education grant program to help build national and state capacity
- Create a separate Environmental Education grant program for teacher training as well as identify Environmental Education as an eligible activity for the existing pool of teacher training funds
- Include Environmental Education as an Authorized Program in the Fund for the Improvement of Education
- Require each state to create a State Environmental Literacy Plans
This is an important time to speak up and turn good ideas into law.
