A six-year, school-based prevention program, which modified classroom teacher practices, offered parent training, and provided child social skills training, was evaluated for its effects on school failure, drug abuse, and delinquency among low-income urban children.
Compared to a low-income control group, children in the intervention group showed enhanced school commitment and class participation.
The girls in the group also evidenced lower rates of substance use initiation, while the boys exhibited increased social and school work skills.
