Perceived Messages from Schools Regarding Adolescent Tobacco Use.
Booth-Butterfield, Melanie; Anderson, Robert; Williams, Kimberly
Communication Education, v49 n2 p196-205 Apr 2000
Interviews 8th- and 12th-grade adolescent tobacco users, as part of a larger study on adolescents' reasons for tobacco use. Finds that: students perceive school systems to be hypocritical and to be sending contradictory messages regarding the use of tobacco; and the reward/punishment structure of public school systems may not be effective in deterring tobacco use among adolescents.
