The Extent to Which High School Curriculum Deals with Environmental Education in Saudi Arabia / Mohammed A.M. AI-Daihan
The main objective of this study was to explore the views of high school supervisors and teachers on how the high school curriculum deals with environmental education. A questionnaire was administered to 301 teachers and 125 supervisors to collect relevant data. The major findings of the study were as follows:
1. Environmental education was not given an appropriate place in the high school curriculum. The same result was true for the three domains: the cognitive, the affective and the psychomotor.
2. Opinions of the sample were in agreement concerning the extent to which secondary school curricula dealt with environmental education regardless of their position, academic degree, quality (educational/ non educational) and nationality. But their views differed according to their years of experience concerning the cognitive domain only. They also differed with regard to the three domains according to their academic specialization.
1. To increase the range of environmental education in secondary school curricula.
2. To conduct more studies regarding environmental education and its place in different curricula.
