The Classroom as a Model of the World
This paper explores the relationship between science and ethics and its implications for educational refonn and environmental change. It is a personal account of my search to find a place for ethics in an environmental science dass and how, in the process, the dass itself is being transfonned. I document how I have come to believe that the dassroom is a model of the world: within my own development, the
transfonnation of a course is implicated and, within the development of the course, the potential transfonnation of an educational system and the world is enfolded.
