Abstract

Some research has been carried out on the contours of school-based AIDS education programming. Some statistical analysis has explored basic correlates of schools' choices. However, a comparative school district study with a full multivariate analysis has yet to be done. This paper reports on a pilot study, based upon New York state data, designed to ascertain the relative impact of a variety of sociopolitical variables on schools' AIDS curricular choices. Implications for policymakers are discussed.
