1972 Legislation and Achievements: Curriculum and Instruction. Emphasis: Drug Education.
As the eighth and last in a series of short reports on 1972 legislation and achievements in specific subject areas in education, this research brief is devoted to curriculum and instruction. To obtain data, questionnaires asking for information on legislation and achievements in education were sent to all state departments of education, legislative service agencies, state school boards associations, and state offices of the National Education Association and the American Federation of Teachers. This report is in no way exhaustive or comparative of individual state activities involving curriculum and instruction; it merely presents a picture of the state scenes as reported by those organizations queried and as seen by a review of newsletters, bulletins, special reports, and legislative summaries. Drug Education is the topic emphasized in this issue, but other categories include bilingual education, consumer education, criminology, driver education, English, environmental education, free enterprise system, guidance and counseling, health education, libraries, medicine, minorities, nonspecific items, reading, social studies, instructional innovation, and testbooks and materials. Under each category, individual entries indicate the state name, bill number and/or statue citation, status of legislation in May 1973, and a description of the item or legislation. A composite diagram of the survey instrument format is appended. (BL)
