Progress in Environmental Education (1970-75).
Trent, John H.
This paper is concerned with the success of colleges of education in providing environmental education to the students in our schools. The involvement of colleges of education and state departments of education in environmental education plus trends in environmental education, as perceived by colleges of education and state departments of education, are investigated. Questionnaires were developed and sent to all 50 state departments of education and to a random sample of the approximately 700 teacher education institutions listed in the 1967 Yearbook of the American Association of Colleges of Teacher Education. Data received in December 1970, January 1972, February 1973, and February 1974 were tabulated and analyzed. This paper presents data on environmental education received from colleges of education and state departments of education, and certain trends have been detected. The reasons for these trends and the implications of them were not a part of this study. A list of references concludes this paper. (BT)
