Going green has become a trend as 21st century society begins to grow an environmental conscience. Now schools, public and private, have stepped into the “going green” arena. The new documentary “Growing Greener Schools” premiering April 18th on KCET, goes inside the new movement at several schools in both affluent and inner-city areas. Could greening schools mean rising grades and test scores? The film explores the academic outcomes that green initiatives and programs had on the children, schools and communities.

*“Growing Greener Schools” airs on PBS, KCET in L.A., this Sunday at 10:30 pm.
