A Student Perspective on Greening Schools: Analysis of an Austin, Texas High School as a Model for Rethinking in Green.

Web Abstract: 
Presents a student's perspective on the necessity of green remodeling of existing schools. Austin's 1974 Lyndon Banes Johnson High School is described as an example where initial sustainability measures have been taken, but significant additional opportunities that would require little investment are possible. These include changing computer settings to reduce phantom load, reducing vending machine electricity use, and switching to water-efficient bathroom fixtures. Includes 65 references.
