    this is insane, teachers are already paid to teach, this is just a tax.

    Not at all! Remember field trips? Remember wading in a creek and discovering critters? Schools nowadays can’t even afford the cost of field trips, and kids spend all their time in front of computers and televisions instead of outside in the fresh air. I’m not personally vested in this bill, but I understand and like what it will provide! This bill would enable actual outdoor programming, and appreciation for the world, nature, and environment as a whole – with the added bonus of healthy outdoor exercise! It would also provide access to the knowledge and skills of naturalists, state and federal park staff, and a wide variety of issues and experts in the fields of biology, agriculture, geology, meteorology, and marine/estuarine studies.

    BOO. Its up to the parents to teach appreciation of things like nature. Not the government.

    I must agree that this is not a federal government item.
    Parents and school districts are the commander in the field and understand what there needs are. If they feel they want to divert resources to this then they should, let’s remember that once we spend money to develop programs, maintenance of the programs are usually unfunded. School districts are already having a hard time dealing with many mandates. Some of which are extremely important to bring us up to the rest of the worlds levels on a scholastic level.
    If States would like to pick this up that is fine. More suited at state or local level.
    My children are not yet of school age so hopefully we can fix larger issues with education before then.

    I am a teacher in public school. We need money to buy books, furniture, computers and supplies. Teachers are already fully capable of developing outdoor education plans and such programs are currently in place. We do not need to spend money for state level plans. This is a non-issue. Spend our money on what really counts. Visit one of the many, many old school buildings and see what it is really like to teach with out proper funding. Outdoor ed is important but “Indoor Education” needs help now.
