Vitek, John D.; Berta, Susan M.
Journal of Geography, v81 n6 p225-28 Nov-Dec 1982
Evidence gathered by student surveys in Flint, Michigan, indicates that residents are deficient in their knowledge of local natural hazards and not familiar enough with the K-12 curriculum to have an opinion on the adequacy of hazard education in the city's schools. Needed are adult and K-12 hazard educational programs. (RM)
