A superintendent has the power to transform teaching and learning inside and out of the classroom. While environmental education (EE) is for all ages, over 55 million students are in school every day (according to the US Department of Education). With leadership and commitment from Superintendents across the United States to integrate EE into the classroom, many more students will experience the benefits from EE.
