Educational Standards in Environmental Education: Lessons for Latvia.
Vestergaard, Evija
This study compares environmental education historically and in the present, as well as the environmental problems, in the Republic of Latvia with those in the United States, the United Kingdom, Austria, the Netherlands, and the Scandinavian countries. The environmental education standards and guidelines of Latvia, the United States, the United Kingdom, and Denmark are then examined and contrasted with the attempt to borrow the ideas suitable for future standards of environmental education in primary schools in Latvia. Nine tables are included for the purpose of drawing the parallels and identifying the differences between the countries. Considerable similarities were found among countries. Suggestions for inclusion in the upcoming standards and suggestions for further research are offered. Chapter titles include: (1) "Aspects of Environmental Education in Latvia, the USA, and a Group of European Countries"; (2) "Methodology for This Study"; (3) "Environmental Situation and Environmental Education Standards and Guidelines Compared"; and (4) "Synopsis of Lessons for Latvia." (Contains 77 references.) (EH)
