Energy Education As We Leave It. Final Report.
Education Commission of the States, Denver, CO.
Since 1978, the Education Commission of the States has worked closely with the U.S. Department of Energy to: collect/disseminate information regarding federal, state, and local energy education/conservation activities; assist states in developing/implementing both energy education and school energy management policies and programs; and better prepare state education officials to deal effectively with energy supply disruptions and/or significant price escalations. Rather than list and evaluate completed activities, this final report focuses on the current status of energy as a topic of public interest and of educational interest in the states. A general portrayal of state-level involvement in energy education, state-specific characteristics of the seven pilot states which have worked most closely with the project (Colorado, Florida, Idaho, Illinois, Massachusetts, Nebraska, and Ohio), and a few comments regarding inter-regional differences in the way states have dealt with energy education are included. conclusions reported are those indicating: cuts in most state energy education programs; existence of state energy offices in all states but under a variety of administrative arrangements; and infusion of energy topics by energy education advocates into basic subject areas.
