In this booklet, I offer a new, reality-based model for drug education
and related school policies. The approach is grounded both in research and
professional experience, with the health, safety, and well being of young people
as the bottom line. My hope is that we, as educators, counselors, parents,
as well as others who are searching for pragmatic strategies to help young
people, will use the analyses and recommendations presented here as a starting
point for developing sound programs for secondary school students.ii(excerpt)
