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