Dr. Priya Lalvani, Professor in the Teaching and Learning Department, was recently interviewed by NJ Spotlight News regarding teaching ableism and disability issues in the classroom.

People with disabilities are the largest minority group in the United States, yet advocates say they’re left out of the conversation when it comes to understanding their contributions to society. A law was passed that requires school districts to teach about the contributions of disabled people throughout history.
