About this book

At a time when wild places everywhere are vanishing before our eyes, this volume offers a passionate indictment of environmental education - along with a new vision for the future.

Writing for general readers and educators alike, Saylan and Blumstein boldly argue that education today has failed to reach its potential in fighting climate change, biodiversity loss, and environmental degradation. They assess the current political climate, including the No Child Left Behind Act, a disaster for environmental education, and discuss how education can stimulate action - including decreasing consumption and demand, developing sustainable food and energy sources, and addressing poverty.

Media reviews

They're asking the right questions--Time Magazine "Their vision is inspiring: environmental education freed from partisan squabbling, and made creative, flexible, and powerful enough to reach citizens of all abilities and interests."--Audubon Magazine "Arguing for a paradigm shift in the way we view education, The Failure of Environmental Education demonstrates how our education system can create new levels of awareness and action and work toward a sustainable future."--Take Part "A manifesto of sorts -- part science, part politics, part moral persuasion."--Miller-Mccune
