Polls show Americans support green schools and green companies

The survey, sponsored by United Technologies Corp. and the U.S. Green Building Council’s Center for Green Schools, also found that about one-third of Americans considered U.S. schools to be in “poor shape”.

These results suggest taxpayers likely approve of the $25 billion green schools program contained within Obama’s proposed American Jobs Act. The plan would provide school districts money for energy and structural improvements that would save them electricity costs and free up money for teachers or supplies.
