Comprehensive School Health Education National Programs. Abstracts of the 1989 Awards and Key Contact Directory. Presented at the National Conference (1st, December 10-12, Washington, D.C., 1989).
Musick, Cindy, Ed.
This collection of abstracts describes in broad terms the scope and objectives of the 1989 Fund for the Improvement and Reform of Schools and Teaching (FIRST) Program in Comprehensive School Health Education and includes names and addresses of recipients. Key groups conducting these innovative programs include five state agencies, seven university-school system partnerships, four national educational associations, two regional educational laboratories, and numerous local educational agencies. Well over half of the programs cover the full K-12 school spectrum, whereas four of the programs focus on elementary school and four on middle and high school. Although the target for most of the projects is the total student population, some priority is given to the underrepresented and underserved. Similarly, although the majority of projects are directed at general statewide needs, they collectively include urban, suburban, and rural models. A Key Contact Directory, which lists some of the nation's more important centers of information on health education, is also included. (JD)
