Urge Congress and the Obama administration make cost-effective, high performing, healthy green schools for America’s children a top priority.

Right now in every state across this country, we are failing to meet our responsibility. School buildings are in a shameful state of neglect and disrepair. One just has to look at a Government Accountability Office (GAO) study that found that 25,000 schools were in need of extensive repair and replacement. And even worse, 15,000 schools are circulating air that has been deemed unfit to breathe. Our kids deserve better.
