2012 School Stakeholder Survey Results
Many of us believe that our schools should be healthy, high performing and inspiring learning environments, ripe with opportunities for future leaders. Architecture for Humanity and our partners at the Center for Green Schools at the U.S. Green Building Council conducted the 2012 School Stakeholder Survey to gain a better sense of where we stand in pursuit of this shared vision.
The results of this survey continue to help the Center for Green Schools at the U.S. Green Building Council and Architecture for Humanity develop resources that help communities seize opportunities to improve their schools.
We shared this survey - the results of which are shared here - with members of the U.S. Green Building Council and Architecture for Humanity professional networks and with the help of the Council for Educational Facility Planners International and the Association of School Business Officials International.
We invite all members of the school community to download these results and use them as a tool to advocate for healthier, more resource efficient and inspiring schools.
We all aspire to build healthy, inspiring and sustainable schools for the next generation. Despite this shared vision, our schools face significant barriers to becoming truly green learning environments. More than ever, outdated school buildings are unhealthy. Budgets are strapped. Educators are too burdened to teach the 'big picture' thinking that students need to live sustainable lives. How can we work together so that every student attends a green school?
