Selby, D. (2006, July) The firm and shaky ground of education for sustainable development. Journal of Geography in Higher Education, 30(2), 351-365.

Selby provides a critical evaluation of sustainability-related education framed by a narrative about choosing paths. Maintaining a skeptical hesitance to the widespread embrace of the term sustainable development, he examines the stakeholders in the “environmental lobby” and the “developmental lobby” (p.353). He also points out criticism of education as advocacy, the idea of educating “for” anything.
