Planning for Education in the Context of HIV/AIDS. Fundamentals of Educational Planning 66.
Kelly, Michael J.
This booklet explains how HIV/AIDS affects education. It focuses on how the epidemic has lessened the number of children to be educated, reduced the number of available teachers, and thinned the ranks of available administrators. The text emphasizes two important themes: education's role in informing people about HIV/AIDS and the toll the epidemic has taken on the education system. It opens the discussion by describing the nature and features of HIV/AIDS and the global extent of the epidemic. It measures the impact of HIV/AIDS on development and discusses the shame and silence associated with the condition. The text describes the role of education in HIV prevention and the need for a radical approach in addressing this monumental problem. The booklet then shifts into a discussion of the direct effects of AIDS on the education system. It outlines the impact on pupils and school enrollments, describes the epidemic's effects on potential clientele for education, and discusses how teachers, teaching, and the supply of education are changed, as are the content of education, the process of education, the organization of education, and the role of education. It also measures how HIV/AIDS affects funding and planning for education. (Contains 27 references.) (RJM)
