Abstract: The ocean literacy (OL) is one of the most pivotal and emerging topics. Many scientists and educators across the globe are collaborating on various aspects to bring the OL into the classroom for cultivating ocean literate citizens. In recent years, the health status of several Indian water bodies is observed deteriorating. The pollution of water bodies is reached to alarming level and considering its serious consequences, we are motivated to trace the presence of ocean literacy concepts in Indian education followed by comparative analysis with the learning materials of the United States of America (USA), a leading country in ocean education. In this study, educational standards of India referred to as Indian National Standards (INSs), and of the educational standards of the USA referred to as Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS) were analyzed individually and later compared on the different parameter with respect to coverage of fundamental OL concepts from grade I-XII. The study has adopted the qualitative approach and followed content analysis approach. It was observed that on an average OL concepts covered in the educational standards of the USA (NGSS) are higher than that of India (INSs). The study revealed that the out of the seven essential principles, principle no. 6 is highly accentuated in the educational standards of both the countries. Besides, results indicated that there is variation in proportion of OL alignment across grade bands in the educational standards of India and the USA. In addition to comparative analysis, the detail analysis of Indian central government textbooks (ICGTs) was also undertaken following a similar approach with minor variation. The results indicated that the OL concepts are underrepresented in the ICGTs and there is lack of a uniform pattern in OL alignment across grades (I-XII). Further, similarities and differences were traced in the Indian educational standards (INSs) and textbooks (ICGTs) and it was discovered that there is a noticeable mismatch in the alignment at Middle and High school level in the national educational standards and textbooks of India. Moreover, it was found that geography discipline of Social studies exhibited a majority of OL concepts alignment in the national educational standards and textbooks of India. Based on the aforementioned results, the proposed study intends to provide references to marine education researchers, curriculum developers, and educational policymakers in India to suitably adjust the OL coverage concepts in school instruction for cultivating OL literate citizens. The study yields the comparative framework between the educational standards of the USA (NGSS) and India (INSs), and Indian educational standards (INSs) and textbooks (ICGTs). NCERT (National Council of Education Research and Training), an in charge authority to draft curriculum and textbooks in India may incorporate few or all suggestions from the comparative analysis output and accordingly plan to incorporate sufficient OL concepts.
