Three young siblings from Pea Ridge in Arkansas have been suspended from attending school until they provide documentation showing that they’ve tested HIV-Negative.

Three young siblings from Pea Ridge in Arkansas have been suspended from attending school until they provide documentation showing that they’ve tested HIV-Negative.

The Disability Rights Centre of Arkansas claims that the school district’s actions are unlawful and contravenes the ADA (Americans with Disabilities Act) and have taken up the case on behalf of the family and are “pursuing every possible avenue of returning the children to school”.

The three children involved, two of which are are disabled, are part of a foster family – their biological mother and sister are both HIV-Positive. The school district superintendent Rick Neal said that he could “neither confirm nor deny the story.”

  1. The Americans should be ashamed of themselves! And those citizens that do nothing to help the plight of this family should equally be ashamed! I might write a letter to President Obama and Pea Ridge school to show my disgust at this outrage and ask them for an update on the case! However it’s too late for the psychological damage done to this family! I send the family my wishes and hope they can recover from the unwanted attention they have received.
