ABSTRACT
Chapter 8 of the book "Caribbean AIDS Epidemic" is presented. It discusses the introduction of the Family Life Education Curriculum guidelines by the Caribbean Community and Common Market to teach sex education and AIDS prevention among youth in Trinidad and Tobago in 1993 to 1996. Some of the schools refused to participate in the project arguing that they had already taught AIDS education, they do not want to offend parents and they lack time. It provides an overview on the reaction of teachers on the sex tutor's teaching style.
