[b]Jason Robertson, whose battle to attend school as a boy with AIDS in the 1980s helped other children with the virus overcome its stigma, has died. He was 23. [/b]

The article goes on to describe what he faced to attend school. Including angry parents who didn't want him to attend because they thought it put their kids life in danger. Funny how it seems to go only one way. Why can't the peanut butter eating kids be ordered to stay home or study in a trailer so that the pa kids life does not get put in danger ?

Well, the truth is I don't believe school is worth fighting for (we're homeschoolers), but that's another topic. If you decide for any reason that school is best for your child, PA, AIDS, or whatever, then you should be able to attend.
But us ? No thank you. Home is the best place to learn. And that's what we think here.
