If you think car-free schools aren’t possible in North America. Think again.
P.L. Robertson elementary in Milton, ON (a suburb of Toronto) just opened this month with a car-free drop off policy. And they didn’t just create a policy in their school operation manual, they also designed a car-free process to back it up.
How in the H E double hockey sticks did they do that? Don’t they know it’s the middle of winter? They live in Canada….it’s cold outside?
Car-free drop off is possible. I guess it takes passion, a principal to provide leadership and a staff and parent community that are dedicated to make the program successful. In my humble opinion, the passionate principal providing leadership is the key ingredient.
I won’t regurgitate the article here, you can hop on over and read it for yourself. But kudos to them.
Any one else know if any car-free schools in North America?
