Research Paper (undergraduate) from the year 2015 in the subject Pedagogy - Pedagogic Psychology, grade: 'B', Atlantic International University (SOCIAL AND HUMAN STUDIES), course: EDUCATION, language: English, abstract: This course is outlined on three major principles: examining schools teenagers' hedonism, health education, analysis of developmental stages in learning, and theory analysis for instance, behavior theories. Further, the course integrates evaluation of youth cognitive and affective aspects in education. Secondary school teenagers are categorized as the energetic and the nation's manpower in improving its economy. However in the 21st century, these youths are encountering challenges based on wrong hedonistic values. It about this licentiousness that Kelly (2008:134) examines a report published by the World Bank in April 2002, on; Education and HIV/AIDS as 'A window of Hope' where the UNAIDS executive Director, Peter Piot insisted that: 'We must adopt cross sectoral strategies for fighting HIV/AIDS, one that take full advantage of the benefits of education and help to create a healthy and cohesive society.' There are several reasons why the World Bank could rightly refer to education as a window of hope in relation to heterogeneous behavior. First school education has been shown to reduce hedonistic behavior prevalence rate among young people.
