A few years ago I wrote a post titled, “Back to School: How the 504 Is Keeping Your Kid From Adulting.”
In case you don’t know what the 504 is, it's part of a civil rights law that prevents discrimination based on a disability.
In layman’s terms, it’s a list of accommodations that level the playing field for students with disabilities or health issues that put them at risk of not having the same opportunities at learning as all the other students.
I knew it was a provocative title I’d chosen for my post. That was the point. I wanted it to catch your attention so you’d read it.
It worked. It got lots of comments.
