The Status of State Energy Education Policy. Final Report.
Energy Information Associates, Inc., Littleton, CO.
A survey was initiated in May, 1978, to determine the status of state policies and practices regarding energy education at four levels: state education agencies, state offices of energy, governor's offices and state legislatures. Four different questionnaires were constructed and sent to designated officials of those agencies listed above in each state. A total of 208 questionnaires were mailed. Analysis of data from 55.8% of the questionnaires plus direct follow-up is included in this final report which represents approximately 70% of the agencies surveyed. Conclusions include: (1) A major lack of cooperation among state agencies exists; (2) The greatest amount of K-12 energy education communication exists between state education officies and state energy agencies; (3) Most K-12 energy education programs reviewed are designed for integration into existing curricula; (4) Most programs reviewed are geared for science and social studies classes; and (5) Energy education materials are available for all grade levels. Appendices include: (1) survey instruments; (2) responses to open-ended items; and (3) a list of submitted materials. (Author/MR)
