Disability Rights Group: Students Kept From School for Fear of HIV

I foresee three disabled children who will be set for life in the very near future in Pea Brain, Arkansas.

I'd love to know where they got their legal advice from.....maybe from Regent or Liberty "University" trained lawyers?

If the story is even half true, then I hope they get every cent that they deserve.

I doubt it... The school probably doesn't have much money. Not all lawsuits involve money either.

Schools get sued on a regular basis over issues with special ed kids (most lawsuits are rarely publicized). I would like to know more?

Where all students required to prove they weren't HIV +? If they were not, why were these three students? It sounds like the two special ed kids may have some unique disability which could put others at risk. What that is, I don't know.

I know there are issues where you may want to know if a kid is HIV + or not. Here in Michigan the Lincoln Park school district lost a lawsuit a few years ago over a student who would bite other students and staff hard enough to draw blood. The school wanted to remove him from a regular classroom, because he was injuring people. Parents of other students were demanding it. The parents sued and the district lost, because the student's IEP required him to be in a "least restrictive environment". The student remained the classroom and continued to bite people. I do not believe there was any money that changed hands. The lawsuit was to prove a point and force action.

A few years ago we had a special ed student who would bite himself and draw blood on a nearly daily basis. He would actually try an eat his hands if they weren't kept wrapped. He was not in a regular classroom, but his teacher and care giver where in contact with his blood all the time. If I was working with that student I would want to know if he was HIV +.

They don't deserve any money, they deserve an education. These kids don't have any lost wages, or income potential. The school didn't owe them any medical treatment either. If anyone is owned anything it would be the State of Arkansas, federal government or any other organization who funded the portion of education that those children missed by not being in school.

A lawsuit in this case should only decide if the kids belong in school.

Yeah but suing the government is a proven easy way to get other people's money.
