About the No Child Left Inside© Coalition

A demonstration for No Child Left Inside.

Background

The No Child Left Inside© Coalition is a national coalition of over 2000 business, health, youth, faith, recreational, environmental, and educational groups representing over 50 million Americans. The Coalition was formed in 2007to alert Congress and the public to the need for our schools to devote more resources and attention to environmental education. View the list of coalition members.

Goal

The Coalition is working to support legislation sponsored by Rep. John Sarbanes of Maryland and Sen. Jack Reed of Rhode Island to ensure that every student achieves basic environmental literacy. The No Child Left Inside Act would amend the Elementary and Secondary Education Act (No Child Left Behind) to include environmental education for the first time. The legislation would provide new funding for environmental education, particularly to develop rigorous standards, train teachers and to develop state environmental literacy plans. It also proposes giving states that develop such environmental literacy plans access to additional funds.
