Evaluation of an Alcohol Education Program for Teachers: A Case Study.
Fitzpatrick, Genevieve
A study was made to determine the impact of a 14-week alcohol education program on the knowledge and attitudes of a self-selected group of teachers in a Massachusetts school system. An assumption underlying the curriculum studied was that, with appropriate knowledge and attitudes about problem drinking, teachers might intervene early with students affected with a drinking problem. A quasi-experimental design was used to evaluate the program's effectiveness by analyzing how exposure to the program and selected demographic variables affected the knowledge and attitudes of the participants. The 33 participants who attended the inservice course and completed the post-test questionnaire made up the study population. It was concluded that short term gains in knowledge and positive attitudes were accounted for by program effects. The 18 hypotheses which formed the basis for the program's content are discussed and the research methodology used in the study is described in detail. The instruments used in the study are appended.
