Discussion centered on the sufficiency of the initial efforts by the Federal Government to create an effective AIDS education policy. Research literature about how to encourage responsible preventive behavior in children and young adults was discussed, and consideration was given to having more science, logic, and reason applied to the AIDS problem. A working draft of the New York City Board of Education AIDS curriculum and the Centers for Disease Control's"Guidelines for Effective School Health Education To Prevent the Spread of AIDS" education policy. are reprinted.
