Pieces of a Puzzle: An Overview of the Status of Environmental Education in the United States.
Lieberman, Gerald A.
This document reports a study of school-based kindergarten through 12th grade environmental education (EE) programs. The study was developed to gather baseline information on the status of EE, identify education reform initiatives and explore their possible interactions with EE, and provide an overview of institutional needs and the factors that limit the broader dissemination of EE programs in the school setting. Questionnaires, observations, and interviews were used to collect data from state education departments with EE offices, federal agencies, national and local non-governmental organizations, local school districts that have demonstrated leadership in EE, and professionals at universities and EE associations.
