Description

The Chronicle of Higher Education looks at the failure of an anti-drug program, in which police officers teach high-school students how to keep away from drugs and alcohol. The story reveals that the project DARE has wasted millions of federal money, even though studies have shown that it is ineffective. Now a new generation prevention program, which received $13.7 million from the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation, is starting with a new curriculum designed with social scientists' help. The article points to the main questions that still remains unanswered by experts: "Are police officers the wrong messengers?"
