ADA, Americans with Disabilities Act, Discrimination
The Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990 was enacted with lofty goals. One of them was to call to the attention of the American people that "disability Is part of the human experience; all citizens have an Interest in ensuring that the values that form the basis for the ADA pervade our national life." More than ten years later, it cannot be correctly argued that complete equality of treatment and opportunity has been achieved for persons with disabilities through the ADA. When Congress created the act, as was seen in other federal civil rights legislation. It listed its prime mandate as to provide a clear and comprehensive national mandate for the elimination of discrimination against individuals with disabilities.
