The Americans with Disabilities Act. Enacted by Bush 41.
And guess who some of the biggest non-compliers are. Right, the government itself.
For example, the Richmond School District in Virginia.
Nearly every school in Richmond remains out of compliance with the federal Americans with Disabilities Act, two years after the Richmond public school system settled a multimillion-dollar lawsuit by parents with a promise to fix the problem.
So why do I hear so many complaints about NCLB being an unfunded mandate, when it really isn't, and none about the ADA, which is? They're both noble pieces of legislation which are perhaps misguided. What's the difference?
