Study: Teen Drug Use at Schools Worsens

Posted at the Chicago Tribune.

WASHINGTON - Teenagers say drug problems at school are getting worse, and parents express doubts about ever making such schools drug free, a new study says.

The percentage of teens who say they attend high schools with drug problems has increased from 44 percent to 61 percent since 2002, and the percentage in middle schools has increased from 19 percent to 31 percent, according to the survey to be released Thursday by Columbia University's National Center on Addiction and Substance Abuse.

Soon they'll be posting the list of the top 100 party highschools.
