My husband and I just presented a drug awareness and education program to parents recently called "NOT MY CHILD". Well, the title proved to us that many parents believe that here - in our "perfect" little suburb community, because the event wasn't well attended. 50 parents came. We were told that it was a great turn-out.
Anyway, even prior to that presentation, I read a newspaper article from other school districts, in another state, that they instituted a mandatory drug education parent meetings. It was well-received and successful. I suggested it to the school Superintendent that ideas with the article but he is being very evasive. Others around here are, as well. There can be some alternatives, as the super suggested, but he hasn't shared them with me, yet.
Someone actually said that they would resent mandatory meetings...... your thoughts?
