The Green School- the scool of the future

The Green School in Bali teaches the basic subjects of Maths, English and Science (like in a regular curriculum), but also teaches kids to protect and care for their environment. They plant and care about vegetables that end up at their lunch table.

When I first heard about the Green School in Bali, my very first thought was: I want my children to study there and I want to teach in this school!

Here's an example of a school starting here in the US. Learning by doing!

Right now it's just a summer institute but I look forward to seeing their progress.
