what was the significance of Love Canal in the 1970's
Love Canal is significant because it was the first case concerning hazardous waste disposal and its possible health effects that received major national attention. [ The Love Canal incident was especially significant as a situation where the inhabitants "overflowed into the wastes instead of the other way around. By the 1970s, the Love Canal became the site of one of the worst environmental
disasters in American history. ]

School choice will create greater stratification and segregation among public schools
Weegy: In some cases yes. But that isn't necessarily a bad thing. For example, a school targeting students with learning disabilities for example would be better equipped to handle those students providing better results. [ Similarly a school targeting "gifted" or accelerated students would be better equipped to push them even further. This is good as we ARE NOT all the same. It would be best to get the most from each of our potentials. We are not all cut out to become physicists. However, although becoming less of an issue in our society today, we would likely see some separation based on superficial issues such as race, religion, or gender, which doesn't benefit anyone. It's very unlikely we will see this with government schools as government doesn't want to offer choice. If education were private we'd be much better off, for a variety of reasons, quality and financial. ] (More)

Determine which factors may explain that most of the higher per-pupil expenditures are found in the Northeastern and upper-Midwest states and the lower per-pupil expenditures are found in the South and West. In your opinion, what must happen to create a balance in school funding across regions?
Weegy: FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE TUESDAY, APRIL 1, 2008 Tom Edwards Public Information Office Public Schools Spent $9,138 Per Student in 2006 School districts in the United States spent an average of $9,138 per student in fiscal year 2006, [ an increase of $437 from 2005, according to a U.S. Census Bureau report released today.

what was the significance of acid rain in the 1970's
Weegy: Acid rain was not considered a serious environmental problem until the 1970s. During that decade, scientists observed the increase in acidity of some lakes and streams. [ At the same time, research into long range transport of atmospheric pollutants such as sulfur dioxide, indicated a possible link to distant sources of pollution. Many power plants use coal with a relatively high concentration of sulfur as fuel. Scientists realized that sulfur dioxide emitted from many of these plants could be transported to the Northeast. When we began to see acid rain as a regional, rather than a local, problem, the federal government had to become involved. ] (More)

what was the significance of • Ozone layer in the 1970's
Weegy: n the mid-1970s, scientists became concerned that chlorofluorocarbons (CFCs) could destroy stratospheric ozone. [ At that time, CFCs were widely used as aerosol propellants in consumer products such as hairsprays and deodorants, and as coolants in refrigerators and air conditioners. In 1978, the U.S. government banned CFCs as propellants in most aerosol uses. Scientists have been monitoring the stratospheric ozone layer since the 1970s. In the 1980s, scientists began accumulating evidence that the ozone layer was being depleted. The ozone hole in the region of the South Pole, which has appeared each year during the Antarctic winter (our summer), often is bigger than the continental United States. Between 1978 and 1997, scientists have measured a 5 percent loss of stratospheric ozone-a significant amount. ] (More)
