Abstract

The attitudes of 15-year-old Czech learners and students of primary schools and grammar schools in the environmental area are presented in this article. The results were obtained from the international project ROSE (Relevance of Science Education) – part of “Me and Environmental Challenges” in which more than 2000 respondents from the Czech Republic took part. By analysis of Likert-scales it was demonstrated that Czech 15-year-old pupils view threats to the environment as an issue of immediate concern to them and to which they can contribute to making an improvement . Statistically significant differences were registered mostly in the opinions of boys and girls, smaller differences were detected in the opinions of grammar school studentsand no differences were recorded in relation to the residential size.
