No Child Left Inside: Legislation for Nature Deficit Disorder?

This is not a brand new issue.  As far back as 2005 NPR promoted awareness in their story with Richard Louv and his then new book ‘Last Child in the Woods: Saving Kids From Nature Deficity Disorder’. The story is at this website.  http://www.npr.org/templates/story/story.php?storyId=4665933
