An empirical examination of teacher receptivity to and practice of tobacco prevention education provides the foundation for comprehensive staff development to increase diffusion of drug prevention education curricula.
Randomly-selected first grade Texas teachers (n=313) were asked to complete a questionnaire during the first and second years of the Smoke-Free Class of 2000 (SFC2000) project.
Initially 64 percent of recipients used materials.
However, two of every five first-year users did not maintain use one year later, and many who intended use never implemented.
Principal components analysis of fourteen items pertaining to receptivity resulted in four scales with acceptable reliability scores : general receptivity to tobacco prevention education, personal support for teaching tobacco prevention education, personal involvement, and school involvement in tobacco prevention.
