Tools of Exclusion

Dawn Brunkalla sadly reports that, last night, in her Ohio County 53,492 people voted for a levy to keep two segregated MR/DD schools open- 67% to 33%. How? The MRDD industry tapped into every single remnant of the public’s assumptions, fears and outdated beliefs about people with labels of disability. This is a perfect case study of how segregated systems stay in business.  Read it word for word at Justice for All.
