Arizona State Dept. of Education, Phoenix.
This report presents five goals and 14 objectives which will begin the process of accomplishing the legislative intent of the Arizona Environmental Education Act (HB 2675) of June 6, 1990 to integrate environmental education throughout the educational system and public education programs in Arizona. To accomplish the objectives, the report presents 92 recommended actions to be taken. A Goal Referenced Planning Model was chosen as the foundation for the comprehensive plan. The report identifies the primary goals of environmental education in Arizona which include: (1) each individual should have a basic understanding of the environmental sciences; (2) each individual should understand the interrelationships between human actions and the environment; (3) environmental education should be integrated into all school curriculums; (4) diverse environmental education opportunities should be available to the general public; and (5) environmental education in Arizona should be a cooperative venture, coordinated at all levels within the state and with national and international networks. Appendices include House Bill 2675, Senate Bill 1176, the Arizona Framework for Environmental Literacy established in 1991, the Tbilisi Declaration, and a synopsis of the National Environmental Education Act.
