- excerpt -

“Older, school-age children have bitten the line a lot harder. Some have their own I-pods and cell-phones in addition to TV, video games, computers and internet access. Exposure varies widely, from children whose parents don’t let them watch TV to children who have their own TV, for example. As a strategy—especially in the public school setting—an educator should be looking for the most accessible and regular opportunities to engage the children in more natural settings. Purely from a zone analysis perspective of a child’s educational setting, the most accessible place outdoors is the school grounds. This is where the school garden becomes an excellent leverage point with an education system that puts a premium on performance and unintentionally reinforces the notion that out-door time is for playing and indoor time is for learning.”
