An analysis is presented of the results obtained from a pilot study conducted with 319 educators in the Pimville and Vaal Triangle regions of Gauteng Province regarding educator perceptions of the HIV status of colleagues and learners and the impact thereof on educator and school wellbeing. In essence, educators perceived HIV / AIDS to be deleterious, both to personal and school wellness. The ultimate consequence of such perception is a teaching corps in need of empowerment.
