What is D.A.R.E.?
Drug Abuse Resistance Education (D.A.R.E.) is led by one of Kansas City's police officers. It is series of classroom lessons taught in the fifth grade. D.A.R.E. teaches students good decision-making skills to help them "avoid high-risk behavior to ensure they grow up healthy, safe and secure."
