Are America's children environmentally literate? Today's overscheduled kids are increasingly "plugged in" to electronic devices and media, while at the same time unplugged from the fundamental and formative experience of nature in their own neighborhood. Their senses--including, sadly, their sense of wonder--are bombarded, overwhelmed and ultimately diminished.
On top of this "nature deficit disorder," many schools are being forced to scale back or eliminate environmental education programs. Fewer and fewer students are able to take part in class activities that connect them with nature.
But a new bill in Congress has set out to change this!
