> D.A.R.E.'s popularity, as demonstrated by the extraordinary growth in its
> rate of dissemination and by abundant anecdotal reports of its success, is
> self-evident.  In part because of its preeminent position, policymakers,
> researchers, educators, and parents are  asking a number of fundamental
> questions about the program:
> 
>          o  How effective is D.A.R.E. in preventing drug use?
> 
>          o  What are D.A.R.E.'s effects compared with those
>             of other school-based drug prevention programs?
> 
>          o  What are some of the basic features common to
>             most D.A.R.E. programs?
> 
>          o  Who usually manages the D.A.R.E. program?
> 
>          o  How extensively is D.A.R.E. implemented nationwide?
> 
>          o  How do other alcohol and drug prevention programs
>              compare with D.A.R.E. and D.A.R.E. with them?
> 
> To address these and other questions, the National Institute of Justice
> (NIJ) awarded the research team of the Research Triangle Institute (RTI)
> and the University of Kentucky's Center for Prevention Research (CPR) a
> grant to conduct an extensive review of the D.A.R.E. program and to
> assess its place within the context of the broad spectrum of school-based
> drug prevention efforts.
