A School Answers Back: Responding to Student Drug Use.
Hawley, Richard A.
This book is written for school staff, parents, and others interested in confronting and reversing the use of drugs by developing children. The book is presented in two parts, "The Concept," and "A Story.""The Concept" presents a program blueprint for schools which either are starting a drug education program or augmenting an existing one. Information is given on problem identification, faculty role, staff training, school-family relationship, treatment, role of recovering users, rules and discipline, prevention, and parent awareness networks. "A Story" recounts the author's own experience in acknowledging and responding to the drug problem at University School in Cleveland, Ohio. The setting, the experiment, understanding student drug use, the response to the problem, and bright signs are discussed. A list of booklets available from the American Council for Drug Education completes the book. (BL)
