Socioeconomic status and drug abuse prevention in a metropolitan region

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

Teams of students, teachers, administrators, and others from twenty-eight school districts received training to carry out drug education programs in their home school districts. There was a moderate relationship between the socioeconomic status of a school district and the implementation of drug education programs by its team. Other factors related to the socioeconomic status of a community are discussed in terms of their effect on team productivity: community attitudes toward drug abuse; the capacity of teams to involve parents; and the availability of leisure time. Support from school administrators is seen to be particularly important for teams. Clearly, team success or failure was multiply-determined.
