Drug Education An Awakening: A Report of the NEA Task Force on Drug Education.
Case, Helen E.
This is a 1972 report of the NEA Task Force on Drug Education. Because of the critical proportion which drug misuse has reached in the United States, the federal government has undertaken a major national leadership role in drug education. More than a quarter of a billion dollars will be spent over the next five years in education, rehabilitation, and research efforts. The focus of federal, state, and local programs is on the individual in all aspects of his/her life. It is the belief of the NEA Task Force that teachers should be able to look to their national, state, and local professional associations for leadership and assistance with educational programs in dealing with drug misuse. The NEA Report includes the following: (1) Definitions; (2) Facts about marijuana; (3) Status of Drug Education; (4) Recommendations; and (5) Questions for further study. (WS)
