Department of Education: Enforce the ADA, don't use Higher Education to promote "Learned Helplessness".

In the summer of 1982, I was the best student in Organic Chemistry at UC Santa Cruz. A month later I ran, from Tuolumne Meadows, over Vogelsang Pass to Yosemite Valley (29.9 miles in 11 hours). My love of the outdoors caught up with me a year later when I fell 140 feet rock-climbing on July 16, 1983.

After 24 years of education (I kid you not), I have few friends, a meager social life, no wife or children and poverty. I do not have job skills or the knowledge required to engage in scientific research. I could not survive without disability payments, because I worked with three different disabled student organizations for 24 years: DSS and DRC (at UC Santa Cruz) and DSP&S (at Cabrillo College). All three intentionally subjected me to, Learned Helplessness. I have started a petition to make it so what was done to me will never happen to another person. To access the petition I have started, type the four words, “petition education ada chang.org”, into the search bar of google, bing or yahoo, while using Firefox, Safari, Opera or Chrome. Click on the link that has, “Enforce the ADA,” and take it from there. Join me tonight for an interesting conversation with Anthony Walton on Dream Catchers with Les Pau!
