Council of Chief State School Officers, Washington, DC. Resource Center on Educational Equity.
In December 1988 the Council of Chief State School Officers (CCSSO) surveyed state human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) and acquired immune deficiency syndrome (AIDS) education programs. The purposes of the survey were to collect information on the characteristics of state programs using a standard set of questions and to determine trends in state HIV/AIDS programs by comparing the data to results from 1987. The results indicated that 41 states had a curriculum guide for HIV/AIDS education, an increase of 13 states over the previous year. As more states developed state curriculum or guidelines for HIV/AIDS education, the critical topics were being covered in an increasing proportion of states. One or more programs addressing needs of high risk youth were identified by 24 states. All of the states provided some training on HIV/AIDS education. Among the states that reported on the percent of districts per state providing HIV/AIDS education, the percentages varied from 11 to 100 percent. (Results of the survey are presented in tables on these topics: state HIV/AIDS education law or policy; state funds appropriated for HIV/AIDS education; state curriculum or guide for HIV/AIDS education; topics covered in state curriculum or curriculum guide; HIV/AIDS education for youth at highest risk of contracting HIV/AIDS; HIV/AIDS education for out-of-school youth; training on HIV/AIDS education; number of local personnel trained in HIV/AIDS education; and data on HIV/AIDS education.
