Thirty-five states and Puerto Rico responded. Some of the results are as follows: (1) Marine science assignments accounted for 1.94% of the total number of secondary school science teachers; (2) There were 1,591 teachers teaching marine science courses, an increase of 1,236 over the number reported in 1973; (3) Nationwide, 48 schools offered marine science instruction with 442 classes and an enrollment of 13,696 students; and (4) Dramatic increases in marine science education were noted in seven states.
