Teachers in North Carolina's Environmental Education Certification Program
Bennett, Kristin R.; Matthews, Catherine E.
Journal of Environmental Education, v36 n3 p15 Spr 2005
This article describes the North Carolina Environmental Education (EE) Certification Program, which was established in 1997, and examines the certification experiences of the kindergarten through 12th grade teachers who have completed the program. Because this program is central to describing and assessing the status of K-12 environmental education in North Carolina, the authors make some policy suggestions to encourage a more focused, more intense, more aligned approach to education for the environment.
