The State of Drug Education in Nebraska Public Schools.
This study was conducted in 1988-1989 to examine the current status of drug education in the public schools in Nebraska. The sample consisted of the 215 attendance centers (out of 280 surveyed) which responded to the study questionnaire. This information was sought: (1) the percentage of schools offering drug education as a part of their regular school curriculum, the grade levels of this instruction, and how much time is dedicated to drug education; (2) the extent to which cognitive and other effective components are included in the drug education programs; (3) the extent to which eight psychosocial components of drug education are being applied; (4) goals of drug education programs; (5) how school personnel evaluate the effectiveness of their drug education programs in relation to their program goals; (6) the qualifications and inservice training levels of the instructors currently teaching in drug education; (7) in what ways parents and/or community resources are utilized by public school personnel in drug education programs; (8) what role has the Nebraska Department of Education played in districts that currently offer drug education as part of the school curriculum; (9) what outside resources have school personnel utilized in establishing and maintaining their drug education curricula; (10) how has the recent influx of federal money for drug education affected the status of drug education; and (11) is there a statistically significant difference among the small, medium, and large public school districts in relation to their cognitive, affective, and psychosocial drug education curricular offerings. (Findings and recommendations are included.) (ABL)
