A State Plan for Environmental Education.
Washington Office of the State Superintendent of Public Instruction, Olympia.
Reflected in this plan is the commitment to a comprehensive approach to environmental education by the Washington State Office of Public Instruction. It was developed with the philosophy that rational decisions regarding environmental management can be expected only when the general public acquires an understanding of the interdependence of all segments of the total environment. The need for and status of environmental education are explored along with the goals, objectives, and organizational scheme necessary for carefully planned educational programs. Activities allowing involvement and participation by students, educators, resource people, community individuals and organizations, industry, educational institutions, governmental agencies, the legislature, and Congress are outlined. Also, the plan provides for staff development, curriculum development, selection and production of resources (people, places, and media), and evaluation of both environmental education and the state plan itself.
