The Status of Middle Level HIV/STD Education as Assessed by State and Local Education Agencies.
Wolff, Wendy J.; Schoeberlein, Deborah R.
Journal of School Health, v69 n6 p239-42 Aug 1999
A nationwide survey of human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) project directors for state and local education agencies examined the status of middle school HIV/STD (sexually transmitted disease) programs. Results indicated that instruction about HIV prevention tended to decline after seventh grade. The decrease related to lack of opportunities for an appropriate fit for HIV prevention within core classes. (SM)
