Disability History to be taught in Michigan Public Schools

0 have signed. Let’s get to 500!


Most people are unaware of disability history. Schools are more likely to teach about black history and women's rights than the history and civil rights of people with disabilities. While these moments in history are important, teaching about disability history is equally important. With this petition, we are asking you, the public, to support our efforts for disability history and civil rights to be taught in Michigan public schools. Twenty-three states are in the process, or have passed a law to have disability history taught in schools. Do you want Michigan to be the last state to put this into law? It's important to teach this piece of history in the public schools because this has been an issue that has been kept out of the light from the public for several decades. With your support and encouragement, we will be able to solve the problem at hand.
