Students teaching students
Peer pressure took a whole different turn recently in Deb Weimelt's eighth grade health classes at Farmington Middle School West.
It is not unusual for kids of that age to talk about crack cocaine, Ecstasy, and other drugs. And it is perfectly natural for students to be curious about what those "highs" might be like.
But in Weimelt's class the past 10 days or so, students have been teaching students about what drugs can do -- and not in a positive light.
