People didn't always see a person with a disability who had to use a ramp or elevator as people who have been given unnecessary privileges. But I run into that often now. People are saying, 'Why do we have to go to great expense for these people?'
Excitement in education and student productivity, the ability to get a result that you want from students, go together and cannot be separated.
