Equality of opportunity : the making of the Americans with Disabilities Act by Jonathan M Young( Book )

6 editions published between 1997 and 2010 in English and Undetermined and held by 570 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In this paper the author offers a reprint of "Equality of Opportunity: The Making of the Americans with Disabilities Act" (July 26, 1997). This personal story is part and parcel of the ADA's (Americans with Disabilities Act) significance in the society. The ada is a nondiscrimination law. It is a clarion call for transforming attitudes about disability. The ada proclaims that all people, including people with disabilities, should participate fully in all aspects of communities and have opportunities to take risks, to succeed, and--yes--to fail. Equality of opportunity means having a chance to live independently and become financially secure, but it is not a guarantee. Understanding the history of the ada is every bit as important as when "Equality of Opportunity" was first published in 1997. Arguably, the urgency is even greater now. Achieving equality of opportunity for people with disabilities depends in large measure on individual transformative experiences like the one the author had through writing the history of the ada. Thus, the author hopes that this reprint of "Equality of Opportunity" enables more people to understand the ada and the outmoded structural and attitudinal barriers it was meant to tear down. A glossary of included. List of Interviews is appended. (Contain 443 notes.)

Wilderness accessibility for people with disabilities : a report to the President and the Congress of the United States on Section 507(a) of the Americans with Disabilities Act by Inc Wilderness Inquiry( )

6 editions published in 1992 in English and held by 511 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This federally mandated study summarizes federal policies and regulations and identifies issues relevant to wilderness accessibility for people with disabilities. The report is based on review of existing federal policies and regulations; a survey of federal unit managers of the National Wilderness Preservation System (NWPS); a survey of programs and outfitters that have provided services to persons with disabilities in the NWPS; and a survey of users of the NWPS who have disabilities. The study found that three of the four federal agencies responsible for wilderness management (National Park Service, National Forest Service, and the Bureau of Land Management) have policies allowing the use of wheelchairs within the NWPS, though the Forest Service policy does not allow the use of electric (motorized) wheelchairs. The fourth federal agency, the Fish and Wildlife Service, intends to adopt policies similar to those of the other land-managing agencies. Managers of NWPS units estimated that a total of 16,767 people with disabilities use the NWPS each year. A significant majority of survey respondents with disabilities very much enjoy the NWPS, and 76 percent do not believe that the restrictions on mechanized use stated by the Wilderness Act diminish their ability to enjoy the wilderness. People with disabilities appear to visit the NWPS in the same ways and for the same reasons that people without disabilities do. Five recommendations for federal policy and procedures conclude the report. Appendixes contain copies of surveys and cover letters, tabulations of survey responses, a list of study participants, and biographies of members and staff of the National Council on Disability.

Back to school on civil rights : advancing the federal commitment to leave no child behind by National Council on Disability (U.S.)( Book )

4 editions published in 2000 in English and held by 472 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This report, the second in a series of independent analyses by The National Council on Disability on federal enforcement of civil rights laws looks at more than two decades of federal monitoring and enforcement of compliance with Part b of the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (idea). Separate parts of the report address: (1) development of the original law and its evolution; (2) experiences and perspectives of students with disabilities and their families; (3) Department of Education (doe) grant administration, compliance-monitoring, compliance-handling, and enforcement functions; (4) how the doe has described its monitoring/compliance functions over time; (5) three cases in which states have developed new approaches to compliance monitoring; (6) the functions of the Department of Justice (doj) in relation to idea; and (7) the technical assistance and public information materials the doe funds or provides. A review of the DOE's monitoring reports of states between 1994 and 1998 found that every state was out of compliance with idea requirements to some degree, and that federal efforts to enforce the law have been inconsistent and ineffective. The report includes recommendations to strengthen the capacity of both the doe and the doj to enforce idea more effectively. Appendices include further information on idea, monitoring outcomes, and recommendations. (Contains 337 references.) (Cr)

Promises to keep : a decade of federal enforcement of the Americans with Disabilities Act by National Council on Disability (U.S.)( Book )

5 editions published in 2000 in English and held by 423 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This report is the third in a series of independent analyses by the National Council on Disability on federal enforcement of civil rights laws. This report looks at the Americans with Disabilities Act (ada) enforcement activities from 1990 to 1999 of four key federal agencies: the Department of Justice, the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (eeoc), the Department of Transportation, and the Federal Communications Commission. Findings indicate that while the Clinton Administration has consistently asserted its strong support for the civil rights of people with disabilities, the federal agencies charged with enforcement and policy development under ada have been underfunded, overly cautious, reactive, and lacking any coherent and unifying national strategy. In addition, it is found that enforcement agencies have not consistently taken leadership roles in emergent issues. The following recommendations are made: (1) the Department of Justice should provide assertive leadership for ada implementation and develop a strategic vision and plan for ada enforcement across the federal government; and (2) the Departments of Justice and Transportation, the eeoc, and the Title ii referral agencies should strengthen methods for the timely and effective enforcement of ada. Appendices include a summary of the ada. (Cr)
