Green Schools Programme

...An Out-of-classroom Experience

Till less than a decade ago, it was universally accepted that the education system in India had not covered itself in glory on the front of creating a conducive learning environment. A mundane approach, shoddy resource materials, and general apathy of school authorities had reduced it to being an insignificant sideshow of a subject that barely registered in the minds of the students. Then in 2004, prodded by a Supreme Court Directive, experts in the field conducted a thorough survey of the scenario. And the changes began; spawning fresh programmes of various scales,shapes and values. This article focuses on one of these, the Green School Programme,and uses it as a tool to take stock of this new ‘environment’ in the arena of education.
