There is a professor at Miami Dade Community College named Chin Yu Kuo who has been discriminating students with disabilities. A lawsuit was filed in February 2020 claiming that he told a student with disabilities, Adrian Dominguez, that his “brain is broken,” refusing to allow him extended time. We need to make sure that this man does not degrade students any longer for issues that they cannot control or change. Let’s make this professor take accountability of his ableist discrimination toward students just trying to receive an education and succeed in life.

Miami Dade Community College has refused to make any changes on account of the accusation not having “enough evidence that MDC created a hostile environment for Dominguez.” Dominguez was given the opportunity to switch professors, but what happens to other students who need to take his class? Why should Dominguez have to switch professors to receive accommodations for an disability he cannot control?

The professor is still employed and advisors are being extremely apathetic towards his behavior, claiming “that is how college is” to refusal of extended time for students with disabilities. 

Please help us remove this ableist professor Chin Yu Kuo from teaching students and further preventing students with disabilities from achieving success. Together we can make a strong impact on educational standards, and continue to provide an enlightening and inclusive environment for students like Adrian Dominguez.
