We Want to Go To School! The Fight for Disability Rights
|Albert Whitman & Co. Sept 2021|
Did you know that before 1971 children with disabilities did not have the legal right to attend public schools? Well, it is true. The history of education for children with disabilities was grim.
In 1971, seven families in the Washington, DC area, who's children were denied a public school education because of their disabilities, joined together to fight for their childrens' rights, and won! Because of their bravery, children with disabilities all over America now have the right to an appropriate public school education.
This is their story.
I am very proud to have co-authored this book, with my daughter Janine. We look forward to sharing it with you.
