Alcohol and Highway Safety Curriculum Workshops for K-12 Key Personnel. Final Report.
Burgener, V. E.
Ten regional workshops were held for local educational personnel in late 1972 and early 1973. Teams of educators were selected from innovative school districts and oriented to the use of alcohol and traffic safety curriculum materials centered on student concerns. Five hundred eighty-seven participants attended from 49 states and Puerto Rico. The materials and concepts were introduced to 14,293 teachers and 1,845 administrators by the 333 respondents to a follow-up instrument. Usage with students, estimated from the follow-up survey is placed at 94,000. A case study review of activity in each of the 10 NHTSA regions showed much interest and action except when it was delimited or postponed by unavailability or slow delivery of the curriculum materials from the Government Printing Office.
