Status Report on Environmental Education Programs in North Carolina.
North Carolina State Dept. of Public Instruction, Raleigh. Div. of Science Education.
A survey conducted by the State Department of Education to determine the status of envrionmental education in North Carolina is summarized in this report. Questionnaires were sent to all local superintendents and deans of education schools in the state requesting information about program objectives, program descriptions, evaluation procedures, and coordination personnel. From replies it was determined about 43 percent of the Local Education Agencies are involved in some type of environmental program, ranging from a one-exposure situation to a comprehensive, multi-grade level approach. At the college and university level, 17 percent reported environmental education courses offered, although these courses were not specifically designed to prepare prospective teachers. Descriptions of selected programs in city school units and county school units are given together with a list of city, county, university, and special programs which appear to have promise for the future. The appendix includes sample letters, questionnaires, and abstracts from five Title III ESEA projects. This report was prepared to serve as a guide for further implementation of the "Environmental Education Planning Project" funded under Title V, ESEA. (BL)
