Perceptions and Attitudes of Graduate Students Concerning Drug Use and Abuse in Elementary and Secondary Schools.
Bailey, Gerald Douglass
A 25-item questionnaire was administered to 100 graduate students attending the 1971 spring session at the University of Nebraska. The survey participants represent six major departments which grant graduate degrees in education. Respondents were asked to indicate degree of agreement or disagreement with each of the 25 statements on a five-point scale. Information was also collected on variables such as sex, age, educational degree, marital status, religion, children, parent's occupation, and teaching background. Results for the total group and the various subgroups identified are analyzed with reference to the following four questions: 1) Is drug use and abuse a problem in the elementary and secondary public schools? 2) What kind of student is involved in drug use and abuse in the elementary and secondary public schools? 3) What factors have influenced the student to engage in drug use and abuse in the elementary and secondary public schools? 4) What can be done to solve the problem of drug use and abuse in the elementary and secondary schools? (Appendixes contain a copy of the questionnaire and tables of responses to each item. ) (RT)
