Green as the New Norm.

Web Abstract: 
Reviews the advent of sustainable school design from a cult topic to a standard in the last five years. While only 120 K-12 facilities have received LEED certification so far, more than 1,000 schools under construction have applied for it. The aggressively green building program of the Los Angeles Community College District is profiled. Advice on avoiding greenwashing, or billing of products as environmentally conscious when they are not, is included, along with considerations for when to pursue or not pursue LEED certification.
