  10. 10. Summary <ul><li>Global warming is a serious problem as you had read or see the presentation.

  23. 23. Sexual Transmitted Diseases By Yunior Rosario
  24. 24. Conclusion <ul><li>What I expect in regard to this issue is to make programs outside and inside schools so that parents will get educated about STDs. They will be able to explain to their kids how they can get infected for STDs, and how they can protect themselves. I think if the principal and administrator take the decision to make those programs for parents but in the name of prevention of STDs between the students, the parents and teachers will be agreed and work together as it is something favorable for all the community and for all the students because the schools can play a significant role in informing the students about STDs exposure and transmission issues and in motivating them to modify the student sexual behavior . </li></ul>
