Abstract

This research aimed to measure the level of environmental literacy among public education teachers in Al-Nadira District, Ibb Governorate, Yemen, using a descriptive analytical approach. The study employed an instrument developed by Al-Maqlahi (2023) with 252 items across four elements: ecological environmental knowledge, awareness of environmental pollution problems, positive environmental trends, and literacy about environmental protection and problem-solving. The instrument was validated and applied to a sample of 311 teachers, representing 38.8% of the research population for the 2022/2023 academic year.


The results indicated that the general level of environmental literacy among the teachers was low, with average scores falling below the 75% proficiency level in most elements. However, positive environmental attitudes were higher, exceeding the 75% threshold at 81.8%. There were no statistically significant differences in environmental literacy levels based on demographic variables, job, professional experience, qualifications, or specialization.


The study recommended enhancing environmental literacy among teachers to better equip them for educating students on environmental issues, promoting the adoption of environmentally informed scientific practices, and encouraging the search for effective and positive solutions to environmental challenges.
