Liberating voices: Teachers and HIV/AIDS

Abstract | Word Stems | Keywords | Association | Citation | Similar Titles



Abstract:

HIV/AIDS is a global health, educational, political, cultural, social, and economic crisis. Global infection rates—including those in America—remain quite high nearly thirty years after the advent of the pandemic. This presentation, which will preview the presenter’s dissertation findings, explores selected teachers’ professional experiences and views on issues related to HIV/AIDS in the classroom. This presentation will illuminate realities associated with the professional impact of the HIV/AIDS pandemic for selected classroom teachers. The study objectives were: (1) To understand and describe selected teachers’ professional experiences and views on issues related to HIV/AIDS in the classroom; (2) To better understand how these selected teachers’ professional experiences and perspectives on the issues may speak to the broader challenges and struggles teachers face in the classroom in the time of HIV/AIDS; (3) To draw from international perspectives in order to highlight global trends, realities, experiences, and perspectives related to classroom teachers and HIV/AIDS. Study objectives were met by conducting in-depth, semi-structured, one-on-one interviews with educators in the State of Georgia (United States). Data was analyzed using an eclectic theoretical framework, including postmodernism, critical theory, comparative perspectives, phenomenology, and structural-functionalism. The finished dissertation product will be a collection of teacher portraits or extended vignettes that seek to liberate teacher voices and underscore the importance of understanding teachers’ experiences and perspectives on issues related to HIV/AIDS.
