A general inventory and initial assessment of marine education activities in California elementary and secondary public schools based on data collected in 1980 are presented. The report includes: (1) a description of the procedures and findings of a series of surveys and questionnaires distributed to schools, individuals, and organizations; and (2) a set of conclusions derived from the findings. Section one briefly describes the history of Sea Grant and the objectives of the project. The second section sets forth the procedures employed in data acquisition. The third section presents the tabulated data concerning elementary and secondary school marine education expressed in terms of instructors, courses, instructional materials, and resources. The final section summarizes an analysis of the data and presents some recommendations received from junior high and high school educators about improving marine education in California public schools. Findings indicate a general lack of awareness, staff, courses and textbooks for marine education. (Author/DC)
