Environmental Education. Position Paper No. 10.
New York State Education Dept., Albany.
In this paper the Regents of the University of the State of New York present their position on environmental education in the elementary and secondary schools. The statement of position is coupled with a proposal for action by the Legislature and Governor at the 1971 Legislative Session. The environmental problem is briefly defined and the goals and objectives for environmental education in the state of New York are outlined. In order to achieve these objectives a program directed particularly at elementary and secondary students is proposed. The major thrust of this program is in the areas of preparation of instructional materials through case studies and local demonstration projects, teacher preparation, and a mobile state museum program for environmental education. Evaluation of all phases of the program is recommended to monitor its success. Appendices provide a description of the State Education Department's present environmental education efforts and a summary of the proposed budget for environmental education in the 1971-72 fiscal year.
