Nature Makes Better Students

Dave Levitan, Conservation This Week:

It shouldn’t be surprising anymore that green spaces make us happier, healthier, and just generally better, but every time a hard finding on the topic pops up it seems incredible once again. Just being near nature is enough to bump up kids’ grades—though we’ll need more data to back this up, it probably can’t hurt to head out and look at some trees any chance you and your kids can get.

We must unlearn what we have learned. Nature makes us great, factory schools not.
