ERS Spectrum, v14 n3 p33-41 Sum 1996
Examines perceptions of principals, teachers, elementary students, and parents of the DARE (Drug Abuse Resistance Education) program for fifth graders begun in Dade County (Florida) Schools in 1988-89. Compares ninth-grade program graduates' drug use with that of a comparable group of non-DARE students. DARE and non-DARE students exhibit no appreciable differences in drug use. (MLH)
