rounds of bamboo tied together to make platforms,
this picture has a light orange colour over it.
Text over the picture reads:
"The crux of the matter in the discussion
around accommodations and
accessibility is that every person-
no matter who they are, how they
experience the world, how they
communicate and how they get around-
has the right to be in public spaces, to
access them freely, and to enjoy them
in the same way others do.
Accommodations are actually
a basic human right."
|image: appears as a piece of orange paper that has been taped to the white page below it|
text reads: "The fact is that use of the word "accommodations" speaks of an ugly side of our
society in which people think compromise and slight adjustments should be enough-
a society that believes disabled people should be grateful for the little that is done for
them, even when it fails to provide what is truly needed."

Why do we insist on small closed spaces and still quiet learners? Think about how many students are currently struggling for want of accommodations that are actually really easy!"|
