Livesteez has reported an absolutely jaw-dropping story:
Students at a suburban St. Louis high school are headed to the gymnasium for HIV testing this week after an infected person told health officials as many as 50 teenagers might have been exposed to the virus that causes AIDS. Officials refused to give details on who the person was or how the students at Normandy High School might have been exposed, but the district is consulting with national AIDS organizations as it tries to minimize the fallout and prevent the infection — and misinformation — from spreading, reports CNN.com. “There’s potential for stigma for all students regardless of whether they’re positive or negative,” Normandy School District spokesman Doug Hochstedler said Thursday.
This is like a Lifetime Movie Network special. These kids are supposed to be worried about catching a ride home from school, not contracting AIDS. Kids are indeed growing up a lot faster than before, and that is exactly why we have to do a better job of educating them about the dangers of the world at an even earlier age.
