According to the 20th Annual Gallup Poll (1988) of the public's attitudes toward public schools, the use of drugs was identified as the biggest problem with which the public schools must deal. However, drinking/alcoholism, was not viewed as that serious of a problem. This category placed tenth, just ahead of low teacher pay and busing.
