Improving Alcohol/Drug Education in Illinois Schools.
Illinois State Board of Education, Springfield.
This paper lists guidelines approved by the Illinois State Board of Education for improving alcohol and drug education in the schools. Statistics point out the seriousness of alcohol and drug abuse in terms of human costs to the victim, his/her family, and associates, and the economic costs of health care, accident losses, crime, social programs, and lost production. The paper discusses the educational philosophy behind the program and suggestions for its administration including guidelines for handling incidents involving alcohol and drugs. Specific objectives and techniques are described which can help students incorporate knowledge into values, attitudes, and habits. Although geographically specific, these materials could serve as a model for the development of similar guidelines. (JAC)
