Can You Spell Environment? - Sure, I Knew Ya Could
In an historic vote today, the Maryland State Board of Education provided specific guidance to all public schools to require that each student be environmentally literate before he or she graduates from high school. The vote cements Maryland as the first state in the country to approve a graduation requirement in environmental literacy, a credit to Governor O’Malley, to board members, and to Dr. Nancy Grasmick, State Superintendent of Schools.

Hell. If Maryland could certify that all graduates are able to read, write and do basic math, then I’d be mighty impressed.
And on that note, I’m heading out into the real environment to test my literacy.
