As we continue our drug education efforts at ****** County Schools, we need to comply with the new education legislation "No Child Left Behind" which requires that we conduct an anonymous student survey about alcohol use, drug use, and violence. The survey information will assist us in assessing our success or failure to convince students of the health and safety value of not using alcohol and drugs.
To gather this information we have chosen the Pride Survey, which has been used by schools in more than 8,000 school systems across the nation over the past two decades. This is an anonymous survey and students are not required to participate, it is voluntary on the part of each student.
If you prefer that your child not participate please inform our office, in writing, before 2/12/08 as the survey will be administered the second week in February 2008. Sign below and return to your child's teacher. A copy of the survey is available in the principal's office if you would like to review its content. A summary of the information gathered will be shared with parents when results are obtained.
Thank you for supporting our efforts to help students understand that alcohol and drug use can be harmful to their health and safety.

Hi, I'm from the government and here to help. Not seeing the parallel on this at all.

Sniff sniff. Smells like an Urban Legend or something along those lines making the rounds. It just has that smell. I bet that if I wasn't so lazy, I could go over to Snopes.com and there would be something about it there. It's a shame to be so lazy. It really is.

Is this just now catching up to me or did 1984 just take a giant leap forward?
