The Nation : N. Y. Teachers Have AIDS

Five New York City school employees, including teachers and a food-service worker, are on medical leave because they have AIDS, and three others who worked in the system last year have died from the disease, Schools Chancellor Nathan Quinones disclosed. Three additional employees also may have AIDS, Quinones said. The system, the nation’s largest, has 100,000 workers. The disclosure added to parental concern about the safety of their children in a system that this week was disrupted by a parent-organized boycott protesting a decision to allow a student who has AIDS to attend second grade.
