Environmental Education (EE) is considered today as an integral part of curriculum in all stages of education, it is blended into all school subjects with the intent of imparting awareness of our dear environment as well as teaching skills to ameliorate the damages by the activities of man incur upon our environment among many other things, acquiring the knowledge of EE makes the learner to see himself/herself as an integral part of environment, hence ever-ready to protect it. One thing observed with most of schools in developing countries like Nigeria however, is that the objective of learning Environmental Education is defeated. This survey is aimed at examining and reviewing the extent of acquiring EE among Jigawa State College of Education students and to what degree did the acquired EE helped toward protecting and controlling our environment from degradation impacted by air pollution? Role of school environmental friendliness, student’s social class, and student’s contact with EE are measured to weigh their role toward controlling air pollution. The findings revealed that most of the students in this survey engaged in activities that contribute in amplifying all types of environmental pollution most importantly air pollution and this was not unrelated to lack of environmental awareness where almost all students responses showed that they were never taught anything EE in all their academic stages. Government and educational bodies were recommended to implement EE right from primary through secondary up to tertiary education.
