AIDS and the Law provides comprehensive coverage of the complex legal issues, as well as the underlying medical and scientific issues, surrounding the HIV epidemic in this rapidly changing area of law. This treatise and practice manual (with supplemental updates) covers a broad range of legal fields, including employment, health care, public accommodations, services and benefits, housing, immigration, insurance, privacy rights—and education.
In the chapter reprinted here, SCHOOLS AND EDUCATIONAL PROGRAMS, contributor Stephen Rosenbaum discusses IDEA (Individuals with Disabilities Education Act), Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act, related jurisprudence, federal guidance and state laws and their impact on students living with HIV. He addresses such topics as exclusion and segregation, disability harassment, early intervention and confidentiality. Like other contributors, Rosenbaum also offers PRACTICE POINTERS. The disability rights and education lawyer and scholar was a contributor to three editions of this loose-leaf volume from 2008 to 2016. This chapter was originally published in AIDS and the Law, 5th Edition (Scott Skinner-Thompson, ed.) in 2015.
