Making Schools Greener

Green Brooklyn has a great item on the NYC Department of Education's New Green School Guide and Rating System, which also brought to our attention the Green School in Williamsburg. (WCBS has also reported on the story.) The school describes itself as "a progressive alternative high school in Williamsburg, Brooklyn, New York that focuses on sustainability, the environment, science, social justice, experiential learning, and career planning." Here's a snippet from Green Brooklyn's item:
Without much fanfare, the NYC DOE recently announced that they have published a Green School Guide and Rating System, and will be focusing on sustainable building techniques. Bravo! In fact, it’s about time we heard some good green building news from the NYC government and specifically, the DOE.
Green Brooklyn has links to the guide and other interesting things, so absolutely check it out.
