This guide to education concerning Acquired Immune Deficiency Syndrome (AIDS) contends that schools as community agencies must help students learn to make rational decisions which will result in responsible behavior benefitting themselves and the groups in which they live. The guide presents the standards and objectives for AIDS information which must be taught in Utah's public schools as part of the Responsible Healthy Lifestyles Core. The guide outlines the goals of AIDS education, emphasizing that the teaching of morality in the public schools is mandated under state law. The curriculum focus is discussed, stating that wherever AIDS education is taught, it should be done in the context of a healthy lifestyle and social responsibility. The guide then lists, for grades 3 through 12, the core standards, objectives, and guidelines for teachers of health education. Basic AIDS information is provided in a question-and-answer format; a glossary is included. (JDD)
