1 step forward, 1 step back for students with disabilities?

from Education Week

Thirteen years after a family sued the San Francisco school district over its lack of adherence with the Americans with Disabilities Act, the district has installed its last elevators, ramps and accessible toilets in its schools. The district spent $250 million to fix 50,000 violations, the San Francisco Chronicle reported. The work entailed adding elevators, wheelchair ramps, new light switches, wider doorways, wheelchair lifts, Braille signs and water fountains accessible from wheelchairs, the Chronicle reported. In the process, the district spent another $550 million to upgrade schools in other ways, including replacing roofs, heating systems, windows, repainting, repaving playgrounds and so on. more
