The objective of this research was to study parents' attitudes toward AIDS education in schools. Questionnaires were mailed to employees in an industrial plant and a hospital in a city of 150,000 in Ontario, Canada. Two hundred and sixteen questionnaires from parents with children in schools were analyzed. Two thirds of the parents agreed that AIDS education should discourage premarital sex; whereas, 88% believed that AIDS education should teach about condoms. Pearson correlations and multiple regression were used to analyze hypotheses that tested attitudes toward AIDS education in the schools. Two predictor variables--attitude toward premarital intercourse and fear of casual contact of AIDS--were significantly correlated with all three measures of attitudes toward AIDS education in the schools. Church attendance and knowledge of AIDS were related to both attitudes toward discouraging premarital sex and teaching about condoms. Three multiple regression models were constructed to predict attitudes toward AIDS education in the schools. The final models accounted for between 11% and 33% of the variance.
