According to a LawnStarter study, Houston was ranked the dirtiest city in America! The survey looked at 150 of the largest cities in America; unfortunately, Texas had six cities on the list. Houston was #1, San Antonio at #7, El Paso came in 29th, Dallas in 32nd, Amarillo was 35th, and Fort Worth ranked 40th.
Houston ranked 3rd in pollution, 4th worst in living conditions, 12th in infrastructure rank, and 34th in consumer satisfaction. Houston, we have some work to do!
We need to address and solve these problems and look for new and innovative methods beyond current solutions. These Houston (and world) issues are why the curriculum on our Collab-Lab addresses social-emotional development while bolstering positive child outcomes through STEM activities. Our Centers of Excellence use a 21st-century learning framework grounded in a comprehensive research-based curriculum that stresses STEM learning. Getting our future workforce to start thinking and solving these issues is imperative to improving our immediate health and future.
As leaders in early childhood education for more than 35 years, Collaborative for Children’s goal is readying young children for school and the 21st century with innovative programs focused on positive outcomes.
