A Summary of AIDS Education Policies in Six Southeastern States.
This report summarizes policies dealing with Acquired Immune Deficiency Syndrome (AIDS) education and AIDS carriers in the schools. It deals with statewide policies in Alabama, Florida, Georgia, Mississippi, North Carolina, and South Carolina, providing reports on each of the six states in which questions on AIDS education and policies were answered. The questions on AIDS education examine who the contact person is who is responsible for developing the AIDS policy; the date of the most recent AIDS policy; the branch of state government responsible for administering and enforcing AIDS education and the type of enforcement which the state requires; which curriculum the state asks local school districts to use in AIDS education; and how AIDS education should be integrated into the regular school schedule. The questions on policies on AIDS carriers in the schools include: (1) contact person; (2) date of the policy; (3) branch of state government responsible for enforcement of the policy; (4) state's policy on forced or voluntary testing; (5) policies which may affect school employees who carry the AIDS virus; (6) state's policy on the requirements for expelling AIDS carriers from the classroom; and (7) degree of confidentiality due the AIDS carriers.
