When I was in school in the late 1960s, newly installed "blackboards" were green. In the 1970s, newly installed "blackboards" were brown. I was at the local elementry school last year, and many teachers were using whiteboards. (I believe the dust in the air from using chalk has become a health concern.) --Ph. D.
