Green Schools: An Examination of Practices and Possibilities in Alabama
Interdisciplinary Journal of Environmental and Science Education, 2022, 18(4), e2292, https://doi.org/10.21601/ijese/12144
ABSTRACT: Green schools are schools that reduce environmental effects, improve the health and performance of students, and increase sustainability literacy. Green schools reinforce optimal learning aligned with resource efficiency and minimal pollution. This study implemented a descriptive survey research design to assess the extent to which green school practices are being applied in a three-county region of central Alabama. Survey results revealed inconsistent availability of green school practices at participating schools. Survey implications point to a need for more focused emphasis on green school practices and collaboration between schools, school faculties, and local education agencies.
