Congress of the U.S., Washington, DC. House Committee on Education and Labor.
These hearings before the Congressional Subcommittee on Select Education consider the extension through fiscal year 1985 of appropriations for programs established by the Alcohol and Drug Abuse Education Act. The text of the extension bill, H.R. 2644, is presented, followed by testimonies from the Department of Education as well as individuals who are currently implementing drug education programs in their local schools as a direct result of their training experiences. Comments are also presented from representatives of the National Institute on Alcohol and Alcoholism, the National Institute on Drug Abuse, and the Center for Disease Control concerning complementary efforts in the areas of alcohol and drug abuse prevention. The serious extent of alcohol and drug use in schools is emphasized and the effectiveness of federal government programs on alcohol and drug abuse education over the past decade is discussed. The federal role in stimulating local interest and assisting local districts in developing effective prevention programs at state and local levels is described, and the issue of giving authority to the individual states by grouping alcohol and drug abuse education funds with other educational program funds in block grants is also debated.
