Master Plan for Environmental Education; A Proposal for New Jersey.
New Jersey State Council for Environmental Education, Mountain Lakes.
The preparation of a Master Plan for Environmental Education in New Jersey was one of six objectives with which the Council was established in 1967. Following a short narrative on the environmental crisis and the need for an environmentally literate citizenry, the Council's proposals are set forth: 1) establishment of a Department of Education Technical Advisory Committee on Environmental Education; 2) encouragement of local school district Concerned Citizens Committees on Environmental Education; 3) strengthening the network of Environmental Education Centers; and 4) support for the proposed legislation included. Emphasis is placed throughout on fostering greater use of the numerous learning environments existing outside books and classrooms. The above proposals are discussed, and several recommendations are made for strengthening and expanding environmental education at all levels, including the general public. Existing facilities and programs which provide various services on environmental education to school youth, teachers, and others are described. (JLB)
