dc.description.abstractNon-formal environmental education (EE) programs in Texas, programs not funded or evaluated by public school systems or the Texas Education Agency, play a very important role in providing environmental education to Texas children. This exploratory study analyzed results of a survey sent to 105 non-formal EE providers in Texas to determine the extent to which their programs operate with clearly defined instructional objectives and the extent to which the attainment of those objectives are evaluated. Survey results showed that over 70% of surveyed programs operate with clearly stated instructional objectives. Survey results were inconclusive concerning evaluation of instructional objectives because data collected in phone interviews of non-respondents was in significant variance with data from the written surveys. Further study is needed to clarify questions concerning evaluation and to determine the extent to which non-formal EE providers in Texas are interested in working together to establish common goals, support specialized training programs, and increase public recognition for their professionalism.
