Peninsula Teenagers Have Drinking Problem

What about the teachers? I remember one in particular at PG High. Don’t forget Frank Abbruzzetti the PGMS teacher that was arrested for operating a meth lab. Recently another teacher and meth story surfaced in the Bay Area – this one was videotaping the girls in the bathroom next to his classroom.

Forty-four percent of 11th-graders surveyed in the Peninsula’s high schools from fall 2004 to spring 2006 admitted to consuming some alcohol within the 30 days prior to the survey, compared to 37 percent in the county and statewide.

The data were gathered by the California Healthy Kids Resource Center, a state-funded repository of health education materials in Hayward, and analyzed by IMPACT for Youth, a organization in Pacific Grove focused on raising awareness about alcohol and drug abuse among teens.

Reducing alcohol consumption can also reduce some risky behavior among teenagers, such as drunken driving, Myer said.
