Title in English: Teachers' Perspectives on Environmental Education
The publication summarizes the results of a survey conducted in Czech schools in May-June 2016. The survey’s aim was to investigate how environmental education is implemented, e.g. what instructional strategies are used for fulfilling its goals. A total of 645 questionnaires were collected from respondents at the participating schools, 11 interviews were conducted with experienced teachers, and 9 case studies were produced at schools that had been selected as examples of best practice. The study shows both the strengths and weaknesses of environmental education as practiced in the Czech Republic. It presents environmental education as a strong field, but also points out specific weaknesses in its implementation. In its conclusion, the publication discusses the most important findings and suggests recommendations for the future support and development of environmental education at schools.
