About The Book
This book, and its extensive Appendixes, provides a useful guide for educators on addressing global challenges through Education for Sustainable Development (ESD) in schooling. The most commonly expressed values, knowledge, skills and quality characteristics of ESD are synthesised from key international and Australian documents to form a coherent framework of criteria for developing, implementing and evaluating ESD school programs and curricula. A critical analysis of the Australian National Curriculum is included based upon the ESD framework, to assess the extent to which the curriculum integrates sustainability, with suggested modifications.
This book is suitable for use by educational policy makers, administrators, curriculum developers, teacher educators, educational researchers, school principals, teachers and students of education. It is particularly recommended to teacher educators for use as a teacher education textbook.
