Dear Dr. Koop:
On behalf of the National Education Association, I want to extend our congratulations on your recent Report on AIDS. You have
performed a valuable service for the American public. We were especially pleased by your willingness to
meet with NEA representatives and to consider our concerns. We have already ordered 3,000 copies of the Report for distribution
to NEA leaders.
Rest assured that we wholeheartedly support your call for age-appropriate AIDS education in the schools. We also are vitally
interested in insuring that school employees are properly trained in dealing with the special problems of infected students.
Please let us know what NEA can do to assist you in this effort.
