Drugs and the Schools, Report of a Seminar Convened by the Canadian Education Association (1st, Toronto, Ontario, June 15-16, 1970).
Contained in this report of a seminar convened by the Canadian Education Association in June, 1970, is a sampling of views and opinions of educators on the non-medical use of drugs among school-age young people. It presents a general overview of the considerations which must be taken into account before the schools can react with confidence and competence to the drug phenomenon. Principal points discussed included development of a central source for information on drugs, the role of students, educators, and outside professionals as well as the schools in helping to solve the drug problems, causes of the drug phenomenon, the need for realistic objectives, and the success of projects started in some school systems. Seminar sessions explored the schools' responsibilities and priorities, coordination of community resources, involvement of youth and parents, counseling-treatment-rehabilitation, developing school-community programs, and curriculum considerations. Delegates and program participants are also listed. (BL)
