…because kids do better when they're active and outside!

No Child Left Inside bill

Rep. John Sarbanes (D-Md.) announced the No Child Left Inside bill last month.

“The measure (HR 3036) would amend the federal No Child Left Behind Act in ways that would free up funding for environmental education. The five-year-old landmark education initiative of the Bush administration mandates annual testing in reading and math and has been criticized by some for prompting school officials to give less emphasis to other subjects. Sarbanes’s bill is designed to serve a multitude of purposes, including getting kids outdoors to creating more environmentally conscious citizens.”
