Should Inhalants Be Included in Australian School-Based Drug Education?
MacLean, Sarah
Youth Studies Australia, v26 n1 p25-31 Mar 2007
This article questions whether inhalants should continue to be excluded from school-based drug education curricula in Australia. It argues that rationales provided for such a policy in Victoria are, in the main, not supported by recent research. The Australian evidence-base about drug education makes it difficult to predict the outcomes of providing young people with education about any form of drug use, not just inhalants. Nonetheless, a strong case may be made (particularly in disadvantaged communities) for policy change on this issue. (Contains 2 endnotes.)
