Many board members fear sustainable designs will cost more

From The Portland Oregonian: Green schools can save energy, they're more healthful for students and they offer real-life lessons on sustainability, but Oregon school districts remain cautious about building them. Of the 27 new schools approved by Oregon voters in 2006, about one in four have been or will be built to national green standards. School boards cite cost as the main reason they haven't pushed for such schools.
