Americans With Disabilities Act Discussed In Education Week
Education Week, in the March 1, 1995 issue, page 11, has a brief discussion of how the Americans With Disabilities Act, passed in
1990, applies to private schools. A major change from previous law is that the A.D.A. is binding for all schools, public or private...
Only religiously affiliated schools are exempt from any part of the law.... So far ... many of the A.D.A.-related complaints have
followed the suspension or expulsion of a student for disruptive behavior. Parents in some instances have questioned the school's
action, claiming their child's behavior was caused by a learning disability.
