Accessibility resource for BIPOC students from BestCollege

Accessibility resource for BIPOC students from BestCollege

Accessibility resource for BIPOC students – BIPOC students with disabilities face significant barriers to quality education. Learn how accessibility removes these barriers, and why this matters.

According to the National Center for Education Statistics (NCES), 19% of students reported having a disability during the 2015-2016 academic year. Of these students, about 80% were BIPOC. Disabled BIPOC students live at multiple intersections of marginalization and face more barriers than others. For many of these students, disability justice and racial justice are intertwined, as ableism, racism, and other barriers discriminate against and disable them, limiting their academic success.
