ECONOMETRIC ANALYSIS: THE EFFECTIVENESS OF ENVIRONMENTAL EDUCATION IN ELEMENTARY SCHOOLS

by Harastova, Marketa

Abstract

This research study focuses on analyzing the effectiveness of environment-friendly practices and programs in schools on creating environment-friendly habits and raising environmental awareness of elementary school students. We select two different elementary schools in Colorado Springs and survey students aged between 7 and 11 years old. We use the Seemingly Unrelated Regressions (SUR) model to analyze our data. The results show that the school with stronger environmental program and focus does have a relevant positive impact on the environment conscious answers to questions in the student survey. Interestingly, we also find that students’ age and gender seem to have no significant impact on students’ answers.
