The Status of Indiana Teachers' Environmental Knowledge and Attitudes.
This study analyzed Indiana teachers' knowledge and attitudes about environmental problems and their solutions. A total of 67 elementary and secondary teachers from urban and rural schools were surveyed. The measurement techniques included a list of 70 environmental terms, 25 multiple-choice statements on concepts, and semantic judgments of 12 environmental expressions. with the exception of science teachers, the study revealed that Indiana teachers possess inadequate environmental knowledge and awareness. This study suggests that statewide teacher training in environmental concepts and issues should be implemented to insure effective dissemination of environmental concepts and attitudes to students.
