What say you?

Here’s your chance to weigh in on a ‘green’ debate applicable to some teachers. Let us know what you think of these opinions from USA based blogger Susan Graham:

I know it’s important to have green schools, but it occurs tome that while we conserve natural resources, we are sometimes rather cavalier about human resources. The cost of recruiting a teacher runs into the thousands, but sometimes it seems school districts put more thought into maintaining school plants that they do in retaining teachers. I’m not as green as I should be. I’m not proud of that and I know I need to do better. But you know what? In 28years I don’t think I’ve ever looked at a child in my classroom and said “Oh well,this one is really not worth trying to save.” Investing in kids and teachers one at time isn’t as easy as remembering to turn off the lights and it’s harder to estimate the return on investment. But maybe it matters more.
