Environment code 'ignored'

24th March 2006 at 00:00
Teachers are ignoring guidance on how to tackle environmental issues, according to researchers at Plymouth university.

Guidance for geography and science teachers which dates back to 1990 suggests lessons should promote positive attitudes towards caring for the environment. However, the study found teachers were reluctant to impose attitudes, preferring instead to play devil's advocate and encouraging pupils to consider the issues for themselves.
