Drug Testing in Schools: A Pro/Con Issue

Drug Testing in Schools: A Pro/Con Issue

by Jennifer Lawler

Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal - School Library Journal
Gr 5-8-This issue evokes emotional reactions in students, parents, coaches, administrators, and school boards across the country. Lawler looks at the pros and cons in an unbiased manner that is a result of scrupulous research, and sources are cited throughout. The book is divided into sections that encompass the history and methods of drug testing and opinions from students, teachers, and parents, as well as the policies of such organizations as the NCAA. Charts summarize information and add a great deal to the presentation; the full-color photos are more filler than informative. This book would be ideal for debates or reports, and is for a slightly younger audience than Lawrence Clayton's Drugs, Drug Testing and You (Rosen, 1997) and David Newton's Drug Testing (Enslow, 1999).-Elizabeth Stumpf, Clearfield Middle School, PA Copyright 2000 Cahners Business Information.
