This study examines the perceptions of educators about the Drug Abuse Resistance Education (D.A.R.E.) program, based on the results of a statewide survey among 286 fifth and sixth grade teachers and principals.
Educators gave their highest ratings to teacher/officer interaction the role playing exercises, and the graduation ceremony.
Ratings of overall program quality and the impact of the program on students were both high.
Block regression analysis was used to examine factors predictive of educators'views of D.A.R.E. D.A.R.E. program elements were the most important factors explaining variance in educators'ratings of over-all program quality and program impact on students.
Altogether, 54 percent and 38 percent of the variance in both dependent variables were explained.
The results are discussed in terms of the important role teachers and principals play as stakeholders in prevention education.
