prevention education is more than teaching the facts about drugs — it is
teaching children and youth about themselves, what is possible in their life now, and what
is possible for the future. How the subject is taught is at least
as important, and perhaps more important, than what is taught.
Because many parents do not talk with their children about the dangers of drug use,
educators are often left to fill the void. Teachers can help students learn the
complete story about drugs, balancing the misinformation youth generally receive
about drugs from their friends, the street and the media.
Facts for Educators has been designed to help you in this challenging role. We hope that
the information that you find here will support your efforts in the classroom.
