The 43 million people with disabilities form this country's largest minority group, yet they are markedly under-employed as educators. Editors Anderson, Karp, and Keller and 19 other renowned contributors address this costly omission and other important issues raised in Enhancing Diversity, including the place of disability in discussions of diversity in education, research on educators with disabilities that validates their capabilities, and information on the qualifications desired in and the demands made of education professionals. Legal precedents are cited and explained, and examples of efforts to place disabled educators are presented, along with recommendations on how disabled individuals and school administrators can work toward increased opportunities. Interviews with 25 disabled educators discussing how they satisfactorily fulfill their professional requirements completes this thought-provoking book.
