The Politics of Environmental Education: Some Insights From Vermont.
Agne, Russell M.; And Others
The author describes the development and current status of statewide efforts to establish formalized environmental education planning. To provide a "data base," an inventory of environmental education resources in the State was compiled and distributed. The compendium covered K-12 education, higher education, community groups, governmental agencies, the media, and businesses. Some of the conclusions drawn show: (1) Vermont chooses to remain independent from Federal/State control in the environmental education planning process but encourages extra-governmental coordination of its efforts; (2) the expenditure of large sums of money to compile listings of environmental programs is not necessary, but there is a real need for a communications system which permits the names and skills of readily available contact people; and (3) there is a strong sentiment against identifying environmental education as a separate subject in the K-12 curriculum. It is hoped that all learning could be environmentalized...that all people can see environment within the context of their daily lives. (Authors/EB)
