The Effect of Environmental Education on Schoolchildren, Their Parents, and Community Members: A Study of Intergenerational and Intercommunity Learning.
Vaughan, Christopher; Gack, Julie; Solorazano, Humberto; Ray, Robert
Journal of Environmental Education, v34 n3 p12-21 Win 2003
Examines the hypothesis that children learn and retain conservation principles in school environments and transfer them to their parents. Students, parents, and an adult control group were given a pre-test and two post-tests eight months apart. Theorizes that parents did indeed learn from children and that both groups transmitted information to the control group which resulted in control group learning. (Contains 46 references.) (Author/NB)
