Summary:
The purpose of the study was to determine the effects of an inservice drug education program on the drug education achievement of participants and students of participants. The problem was concerned with the evaluation of a specific inservice program. Of particular interest was the achievement of students whose teachers had completed the inservice program. A pretest/posttest-control group design was used in the experimental study. The population selected for the study was all fourth and fifth grade teachers and their students in the North and Central Area public elementary schools of Palm Beach County, Florida. A random sample was drawn from an alphabetized list of teachers in the designated population. Teacher subjects were assigned to the experimental and control groups on an odd/even basis. Student subjects were drawn randomly from the attendance cards of each teacher subject. In this study, no significant relationships were found concerning teacher achievement and age or years' experience. A significant relationship was found between achievement of all teacher subjects and achievement of their students. Student achievement was dependent on test performance of their teachers. The information survey revealed that the self-instructional type inservice program was acceptable to the teachers in the experimental group, and that this approach was effective in improving and updating teachers' knowledge of drug education.
