Identifier: SMHC Collection 1462

Overview

The Jeffrey Pridie collection consists of an audiocassette and transcript for an oral history interview conducted between Pridie and Raymond Arsenault during the winter of 1987. Pridie began his career as an art teacher at Blue Earth, Minnesota in 1981. In 1987, Pridie left Blue Earth to take a teaching position in Waterville, Minnesota. In the interview, Pridie noted the problems of chemical and drug abuse among secondary students in the two schools. He discussed his experiences working with Partners in Prevention (PIP) in both schools and the results of drug and chemical abuse on the educational system. Furthermore, he explained various improvements in the identification and treatment of students with these problems during his seven year career.

This oral history interview was conducted as a requirement for a course entitled Current Issues in Public Education at Mankato State University in Mankato, Minnesota.
