Promoting Safe, Disciplined, and Drug-Free Schools: National Education Goal 6 and Students with Disabilities. Brief Report 7.
National Center on Educational Outcomes, Minneapolis, MN.
This brief report cites the grade of "improving" given to the American educational system on the last of the six National Education Goals proposed by the President and the Governors in 1990. The sixth goal states that "By the Year 2000, every school in America will be free of drugs and violence and will offer a disciplined environment conducive to learning." The report then discusses this goal in relation to students with disabilities, outlining the extent of drug use and other high risk behaviors among students with disabilities, the frequency of these students' involvement in disciplinary problems, methods of monitoring the quality of the learning environment for students with disabilities, and information that is still needed.
