The Reality of Drugs in the Life of Your TeenJanuary 23, 2012 1 Comment
Kernersville, North Carolina, decided to take a peek at its teenage drug problem. Nestled in the heart of three large cities, this community was certain that its problem was not nearly as bad as the rest of the nation. Many adults believed that 10% of the high school students abused drugs. However, when the hometown newspaper—the Kernersville News—surveyed 1,706 local teenagers, it was shocked to report that 92% of the respondents believed that “most of the students in my school use drugs.” PattyJo Sawvel tackles this tough issue through a ten year book project which is telling for every community in America. Thank you Patty Jo for your commitment to teenagers in America.
