Drug Crisis: Schools Fight Back with Innovative Programs. Education U.S.A. Special Report.
Jones, J. William
An indepth study of the drug issue and problem in American schools is presented in this Education U.S.A. Special Report by the National School Public Relations Association. Dealing with what is and what is not being accomplished, the report probes the extent of the drug problem; reasons for its existence; the scare tactics of overkill versus the listless approach of underkill as used in drug education programs; the state of drug abuse education programs across the country; model anti-drug projects; essential components of a K-12 program; establishing policies and in-school methods of dealing with drug users; and the role of the parent. Present legislation and the intent and implication of laws that deal with drugs are covered as well as facts and figures about drugs, their use and abuse. Bibliographies of drug education projects and reference materials are designed for educators planning drug abuse education programs. (BL)
