The Nation's Energy Education Report Card.
National Energy Education Development Project, Reston, VA.
The National Energy Education Development (NEED) Project was launched by Congressional Resolution in 1980. The subsequent presidential proclamation initiated a decade-long effort to introduce or enhance energy education programs in U.S. schools. The NEED Project stresses the use of evaluation tools for students to measure the effectiveness of their school's energy education program. The NEED Energy Education Poll was designed as an activity students could utilize to evaluate the success of their projects and activities. It also allows the NEED Project to gauge the progress of a large number of students throughout the nation involved in energy education. The information gathered from the state and national poll results allows NEED to discover where students lack information about energy, as well as how they feel about energy issues. This document includes the results of the secondary and middle school polls, a copy of the "1990 NEED Energy Education Poll" and a chart of the distribution of answers. (CW)
