I Know That all Schools should have a D.A.R.E program. Take it from my point of view. I am a teenager in a school where almost everyone is completely drunk in the first place and with out a D.A.R.E program I am pretty sure I would be bullied to my death right now. Anyway even if D.A.R.E programs are completely useless I know from past experience that everything is better on the safe side. :)
While I understand that some people may not want these types of programs in schools, I think they can be very beneficial to students and help the community to understand the danger that drugs can present. I think schools should offer these programs to the students who are interested in them.
Although D.A.R.E. Was supposed to keep kids and teens save and away from drugs it failed. Instead of teaching them about the dangers of certain drugs it just simply tells them not to do drugs and as we all know kids and teens will definitely do it if you tell them not to.
No, not all schools should have a D.A.R.E. program as many studies are showing that such programs do little to curb drug and alcohol usage in teenage years. Such programs are merely lip service and do not solve the underlying problems, such as poverty and access to drugs in the first place.
