So to celebrate Earth Day, we are highlighting 5 ways education can help save the planet.

This post is brilliant! Thank you to the writers and the artists. I wish I was still in the classroom so that I could use it. I have sent it on by FB, Twitter and e-mail so that my former colleagues can use it. Phyllis
