Climate Change Study: Teachers Perspective

Dr. Nileema Bhalerao

Abstract: This study provides an insightful analysis of the awareness and understanding of climate change among secondary school science teachers in India. It investigates the depth of knowledge, beliefs, and misconceptions about climate change held by educators, a key factor given their role in shaping future generations. Conducted with 310 secondary school science teachers across four categories of schools. Government lower income, government middle income, private middle-income, and private higher income, the research seeks to identify variations in climate change pedagogy influenced by socio-economic factors and school infrastructure. The study evaluates the causes of climate change as perceived by teachers, their factual understanding, interest in attending awareness seminars, and time devoted to teaching this critical topic. Given the increasing enrolment in Indian schools, as highlighted by the Ministry of Statistics and Program Implementations 2016 statistical yearbook, this research is timely in assessing the preparedness of educators in addressing one of the 21st century?s most pressing environmental challenges.
