Sažetak
The educational task of the gymnasium is to develop higher levels of moral consciousness, ie to adopt values that increase the contribution to the general welfare of society. In secondary schools, particularly in the academic achievement and cognitive development of personalities, the educational element is neglected, and secondary school students (as future intellectuals) can be seen as the bearers of society's progress. Therefore, ecological education (if we observe ecology in the broader sense) will provide the opportunity for systematic development of knowledge and social skills, which would mean returning to the core human values that are essential for the advancement of society. Viewed from the pedagogical but also broader point of view, the research on ecological education in our scientific literature is limited. There is a question that is justified, given the high attention that Croatia has given these dimensions of development, compared to more developed countries. The aim of this paper was to examine attitudes and opinions of students and teachers on the implementation of environmental education in schools and classrooms. The study encompassed a total of 591 students and 190 teachers of all Osijek-Baranja secondary schools. The results of the research have shown that teachers and students are not satisfied with the use of environmental education in the school. Assessments show that teachers did not encourage pupils to behave ecologically, that schools did not organize enough environmental activities, that these activities were not related to local community activities, that most of the respondents had poor environmental issues, which were also poorly represented in the school program. The curricular approach to environmental education in Croatia is mainly conducted in isolated descriptions of teaching areas, subjects and educational achievements, based solely on the classroom's educational impact (and only in the science class), leaving their didactic-socialization structure systematically neglected.
