I thought this was an interesting story, his parents disclosed on enrollment paperwork that although he carries the gene for CF, he's never been clinically diagnosed:
A California boy has been ordered to transfer to another middle school because he carries the gene for cystic fibrosis, even though he doesn't actually have the incurable, life-threatening and non-infectious disease. His parents have gone to court to fight the move.
Their son, 11-year-old Colman Chadam, was told last week that he’d have to transfer from Jordan Middle School in Palo Alto, Calif., to a school three miles away because he posed a risk to another student at school who does have the disease, according to TODAY.
Have you ever run into an issue with another child at your school with CF?
