The personal learning network for educators
February 19, 2011
The topic of discussion around the Global Crisis of HIV and AIDS is difficult. It becomes even more difficult when you add the need to have this discussion in our public and private school settings. The stigmas are huge, but the dangers to our students, of being ill-informed, are even bigger.
My son Jason is experiencing first hand, how difficult the discussions really are, working in Florida as a patient advocate for The AIDS Healthcare Foundation. Set aside 10 minutes and listen to why Jason and I are passionate about the need for educators to inform themselves and guide their students in discussions about this life threatening disease. Then check out this excellent resource on AIDS Education & Young People: http://www.avert.org/aids-young-people.htm. Thank you for listening.
Keep an eye out for the book, The 30 Goals Challenge for Educators, that will be published by Eye on Education in the Fall of 2011!
