With the nation facing complicated environmental issues that will challenge us for years to come, it is critical that schools provide students with a solid grounding in environmental education. But because of the No Child Left Behind Act (NCLB), many schools are scaling back or eliminating environmental education programs. Congress has the opportunity to change this with the reauthorization of NCLB. (Learn more about the NCLI Act.)

Write a letter urging your Representative to co-sponsor the No Child Left Inside Act and support inclusion of environmental education in NCLB. By making a few changes to NCLB, we can dramatically improve our schools' ability to prepare children for real-world challenges and careers—and ensure an environmentally sustainable future.
