EPA Spends $10.8 Million for Teacher Training on ‘Environmental Education’

(CNSNews.com) – The Environmental Protection Agency is spending over $10 million in taxpayer dollars for a five-year program to train teachers to “deliver high-quality environmental education in formal and non-formal education settings.” “Environmental educators help learners of all ages understand and value the ecosystems around them,” said U.S. EPA Administrator Gina McCarthy. “The teacher training program gives educators access to the best classroom and out-of-classroom materials and professional development opportunities, focused on using the environment as a platform for learning science, technology, engineering and math skills to improve decision-making.” The program called “ee360” will begin next year and is the result of a cooperative agreement between the EPA and the North American Association for Environmental Education (NAAEE), the agency’s teacher training program.
