Assessing the DARE Program
The DARE Program and its effectiveness and continued funding has become a source of heated public debate over the past few years, as the program frequently becomes a target of budget cuts, despite its huge popularity with parents. The program is often cited as ineffective in reducing drug usage by those graduating from the program.
Write a 2 page paper. Address the following in your paper:
- Should the DARE Program be discontinued? Why or why not?
- Are there any other unintended consequences of the DARE Program that should be considered when the program is assessed? If so, what are they and why are they important to consider?
Include a title page and 3-5 references. Only one reference can be from the internet (not Wikipedia). Please adhere to the American Psychological Association (APA) 6th edition, 2nd printing when writing and submitting papers. Papers should be grammatically correct. Lastly, avoid first person and contractions in your paper. You can provide an opinion without using “I think” statements.
