Sustainable Development Education in Scottish Schools: The Sleeping Beauty Syndrome
McNaughton, Marie Jeanne
Environmental Education Research, v13 n5 p621-638 Nov 2007
This paper reviews and discusses the development of Sustainable Development Education (SDE) policy within the context of the Scottish formal school system. The focus is on the progress, and lack thereof, of implementation of SDE in schools in the light of some of the key curriculum documents and associated political decisions and advisory reports. The period of the review dates from 1993, which saw the publication of a report that was regarded as the seminal document for the development of environmental education in Scotland, to 2007 and the Scottish Executive's proposals for SDE in the light of curriculum reform for schools for the 21st century. The paper employs, loosely, the metaphor of the Sleeping Beauty to tell the story of SDE in Scotland in three parts: the story's three phases of emergence, obscurity and re-emergence might serve as a useful metaphor, here. (Contains 3 notes.)
