Abstract

Previous studies have shown that there is a positive relationship between environmental education and pro-environmental behaviors and attitudes. The aim of this study is to describe an empirical approach to measuring aspects of environmental science literacy through using data from OECD PISA 2006 in Spain. Four that purpose, we use multilevel model is to analyze in detail the impact of school activities and other additional sources on the environmental education of 15-years-old students. Our findings show that schools have a secondary role in the provision of environmental knowledge, since only few activities have a significant influence on students’ environmental performance, while media seem to have a major role in providing that information.secondary school, PISA, environmental knowledge, technical efficiency
