Abby Martin Posted about 2 years ago Why is Outdoor Education not talked about as part of the curriculum in a viable alternative education? I have a general knowledge of how outdoor ed. works and the inherent risks and benefits. While I haven't been actively employed as an outdoor educator, I have worked alongside them in outdoor fields and been a student in a National Outdoor Leadership School semester. I know there are programs out there and that they help many people, but if this is the case, why isn't Outdoor Education a bigger part of the education revolution?
