In the past ten years, major reports have appeared criticizing the educational system. A number of these suggest that schools are not producing adults willing to take an active citizenship role in society. Such reports as A Nation at Risk (NCEE, 1983) and The Carnegie Report (Boyer, 1983) are among many general education studies which address this point. Reports from specific content areas (Harms & Yager, 1981; Patrick & Remy, 1985; Ramsey & Hungerford, 1988) have also voiced concern regarding a seeming lack of American interest in dealing with the many science, technology and society (STS) issues which face the nation today.
