Open Access Graduate Research Paper


Educational systems in our country have continually faced the challenge of providing educational opportunities for all our children. As well as maintaining a national goal of high educational standards, we have also encouraged an individualistic approach to meeting needs of students. Our educational systems must deal with an extremely wide range of personalities, beliefs, backgrounds, expectations, incomes and abilities. Teachers have a wealth of information available to help them determine students' individual needs and ways of meeting these needs. Students' needs can vary from cognitive-knowledge and moral-motivational needs to personal-emotional and physical needs. Curricula and programs generally attempt to insure that all these domains of a student's being are touched upon. One area of education that focuses on all these domains and incorporates means of meeting a wide variety of needs is that of environmental education.
