Druglink article 1996 – Who DARES wins? Drug prevention and the police in schools by Jan Keene and Professor Michael Williams

This article reports the results of a recent review of international research studies on school-based drug education. The effectiveness of the American police led DARE programme is examined, as is the Australian model of teacher-led drug education. Although DARE has received a deal of media coverage and political support in the UK, the cultural appropriateness of importing such a programme from America is not obvious, and the question of who should teach drug education is still left unaddressed.
