Why haven't we seen these already?

For me as a professional educator, not having standards makes it a joke to create lesson plans because what would you align your assessments, activities, and objectives with? How would you organize 180 days of learning? It's Time for Standards, Teacher's Guides, and MORE, so we can get Permaculture into the K-12 system as the FOUNDATION FOR ALL EDUCATION, not an elective, but the lens through which all subjects flow. Though I've written the textbooks, I've only created what I call "camp curriculum" for summer camps actually but schools are now using them - this freaks me out lol because it means that teachers are not being trained in principles first, not creating their own lesson plans from scratch, and are using flawed textbooks instead of crafting their own as I did for years as a public charter school teacher and this is likely why I've created 12+ K-12 permaculture books in the past 3 years. I'm almost ready to release the standards for comment and I'll do so here and on my website after the peer reviewers and I pass it back and forth editing it for a bit. If you'd like to support this project and to get yourself a copy of the standards, lesson plans, best practices, and even detailed critiques of current standards (NGSS, NSES, Environmental Literacy, & California's Environmental Initiative), then you can preorder your copy of this book here: CLICK HERE

Expect your copy Nov/Dec 2018 We are almost done - just doing final review and editing before the peer reviewing begins!!  CLICK HERE

Permaculture is a system that examines nature's patterns ...

Also Remove all uses of 'regenerating' to 'sustaining'   'regenerative'  with  'sustainable'

Problem is man destroys soils by habit.  We can not 'regenerate' the soil destroyed in our lifetimes.  We must first sustain what we have then start the process of growing new soil.
