This research is an examination of environmental communication in the educational system in Asheville City Schools and Buncombe County Schools. The study seeks to identify how environmental issues are communicated and articulated to students, including the procedure and resources utilized in disseminating information. This study also examines whether schools in low-income and predominately minority areas are prioritized as much as those in high-income, predominately white areas. In-depth interviews were conducted with environmental educators and professionals to identify the strategies and the resources needed to implement environmental issues campaigns. This study broadens the literature on the education of environmental issues within K-12 schools.
