At an urban L.A. school, nature grows — and test scores too

NBCLatino Reports: Harvesting New and Improved Science Test Scores from NBC News on Vimeo.

Such a great story...... A school in a high density neighbourhood of Los Angeles, tore out it's tarmac and planted native species.

"Three years ago, the school's standardized test scores in science for fifth-graders showed that 9% were proficient and none were advanced. Last spring, 53% of fifth-graders tested as proficient or advanced."

Can't argue with that.
