Uzzell, David
Cambridge Journal of Education, v29 n3 p397-413 Nov 1999
Discusses the five shortcomings of environmental education: (1) uses top-down and center-to-periphery teaching model; (2) does not lead to action competence; (3) lacks authenticity; (4) the record of success in changing children's attitudes and values is questionable; and (5) the context must facilitate participation and change. Offers four models of the school-community relationship. (CMK)
