The Role of the School's Social Environment in Preventing Student Drug Use.
Schaps, Eric; Solomon, Daniel
Journal of Primary Prevention, v23 n3 p299-328 Spr 2003
Summarizes studies of school environmental factors associated with student drug use and prevention. Major factors that emerge are school supportiveness, sense of community, and opportunities for students to interact and to exert influence. A common conclusion seems to be that a supportive environment increases students' attachment to school and thereby their inclination to abide by the school's norms and values.
