Sustainability in Australian schools: a cross-curriculum priority?

In light of Australian policy and curriculum initiatives aimed to prioritize Education for Sustainability (EfS) practices, this article discusses a study that evaluated a smart meter program introduced by a local government of an Australian state/territory. The program aimed to provide teachers and students from 86 primary and secondary schools access to data on energy, gas, and water consumption through a website that digitally recorded schools’ consumption in real time. While the Australian curriculum supposedly prioritizes EfS as a cross-curriculum aim, the results from this small study suggest that EfS is neither a priority nor cross-curricular.
