Schoolyard Learning: The Impact of School Grounds

Education Development Center, Inc. and the Boston Schoolyard Funders Collaborative

During the Spring and Summer of 2000, the Boston Schoolyard Initiative, in collaboration with the Global Learning Group, undertook a survey of schoolyard programs aimed at increasing educational opportunities for children. The survey results, along with a literature review, have been incorporated into a research paper on the impact of school grounds on children's learning and development.
