National Education Goal 6 challenges us to create safe, disciplined, drug-free schools for our children. This book describes model drug prevention education programs in schools selected by the U.S. Department of Education's 1991-1992 Drug-Free School Recognition program. The schools offer practical and adaptable advice in six areas: (1) recognizing, assessing, and monitoring drug, safety, and discipline problems; (2) setting, implementing, and enforcing policy; (3) developing and implementing a drug prevention education curriculum; (4) educating and training staff; (5) promoting parent involvement and providing parent education and training; and (6) interacting and networking with community groups and agencies. Additional recommendations include starting drug prevention activities early with young children. Five schools in Montana, Georgia, Washington, D.C., Minnesota, and Florida are highlighted. Contains a list of publications, agencies and organizations, regional centers, as well as 79 schools that can serve as resources. (JE)
