I'm very excited to share with you all the results of the Environmental Education: Inventory of Current Practices survey that was developed in Fall 2017 and administered to Rhode Island teachers and administrators in Spring 2018 by the Rhode Island Environmental Education Association (RIEEA). The purpose of the survey, which was generously supported by the Pisces Foundation and the Rhode Island Foundation, was to gain an accurate understanding of the current state of environmental education in Rhode Island schools and to assess what educators need to successfully implement environmental education practices.
I've attached a summary, the full report, and the actual survey questions. Please note that survey questions 4-27 were for those respondents who identified as teachers and questions 28-52 were for those respondents who identified as administrators. There were some surprising and interesting findings, and we're looking forward sharing the tool at the NAAEE Conference in Spokane where we'll discuss the development and implementation of the survey tool, consider how to conduct a similar inventory of current practices in your state/area, and the successful partnerships that were informed by the results.
