Energy Education: A Policy Development Handbook.
Education Commission of the States, Denver, CO.
Designed for education policymakers, members of educational and political organizations, representatives of business and industry, and other groups and individuals who are concerned with helping young people and adults to better understand and cope with multi-faceted energy problems, this handbook: (1) addresses the need for energy education, (2) indicates the advantage of a policy basis for energy education, and (3) offers assistance for persons in developing appropriate energy education policies. The handbook is divided into two major sections. Section one builds a case for comprehensive state and local energy education policies by defining energy education and examining the need for energy education and related policies. Section two outlines nine steps involved in this policy development and implementation process and discusses who makes policies and what obstacles impede the process. The last section identifies other related issues. (Author/DC)
