You might not be aware of the program, Drug Abuse Resistance Education, but you would likely recognize its acronym, D.A.R.E. It’s a program that was established in 1983 aimed at educating children k-12 about the dangers of drug use and abuse.
It’s still around today and so is data about its ineffectiveness as a deterrent. If you thought D.A.R.E. was a great program, think again.
