The school stands by it's decision, but based on a technicality it will submit and allow the boy in? So does that mean as soon as they cn come up with a stronger argument to discriminate against HIV+ children they will? Let's hope that so called training they are getting pays off.

I don't believe in this day and age aschool could get this so wrong. The principal should be sacked.

Good for this kid! But I'm sorry, in this day and age, there is not one damn good reason to be misinformed about HIV/Aids. There was no damn good excuse for not accepting this young man. SHAME ON THEM!

It's really offensive that they "stand by their initial decision" Still. After being forced to admit this child. 8

I commented on this story when it was first reported. I was moved then at how much education is needed in our society so that HIV+ individuals can receive equal treatment. I am now touched that one more HIV+ person, in this case the young student, is championing the cause. I am proud of him, and wish him luck and continued success as he moves forward.

How could they "stand by their initial decision?" If they had any integrity, they would just admit to having made a mistake in not accepting the boy in the first place because they were ill-informed.
