Criminal Justice: Assessing the DARE Program

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 2-3 page paper. Address the following in your paper:

  1. Should the DARE Program be discontinued? Why or why not?
  2. 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?

You MUST use a total of 3-5 references provided along with one from the Internet and not Wikipedia. Please adhere to the APA format 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.
