Congress of the U.S., Washington, DC. Senate Committee on Labor and Human Resources.
This report on drug abuse in the schools is based on the testimonies of several panels at a Congressional hearing. The materials contain reports from: (1) a group of students talking about their experiences with drugs, alcohol, and delinquency; (2) law enforcement officials and judicial representatives discussing innovative judicial approaches and highlighting students' problems from an insider's perspective; and (3) counselors, educators, and parents emphasizing the need for cooperation. The report also focuses on the impact of federal funding cuts and the success of several current drug rehabilitation programs. Parent participation and the responsibility and role of the schools are also described. The document concludes with letters from adolescents pointing out the importance of drug rehabilitation programs and protesting proposed cuts in services. (JAC)
