Milgram, Gail Gleason
The purpose of this study was to identify the objectives for a high school course in alcohol education as perceived by school administrators, department chairmen, teachers, parents, and students in one community. Data were collected by interviews and questionnaires; these provided information on opinions. Conclusions, summarized from responses of the reference groups, showed that: (1) adult respondents exhibited a moderately authoritarian opinion toward youth; (2) reference groups generally accepted temperate teenage use of alcohol; (3) administrator and teacher opinions regarding teenage drinking and goals of alcohol education were related to department affiliation, age, and marital status while parent opinions were related to marital status, educational level, social class, drinking habits, and the child's drinking habits; (4) methods of alcohol control accepted by the reference groups were strict formal control, role modeling, religious education, and alcohol education; and (5) selected goals of alcohol education, in order to favorableness, were physiology (alcohol effects), information regarding alcoholism, mental health education, sociology of drinking patterns, fostering attitudes toward temperate drinking, and education for abstinence.
