Blind Students Sue Florida State University over Inaccessible Math Courses
With the assistance of the National Federation of the Blind, two blind students—Christopher Toth and Jamie Principato—filed suit on June 29th against Florida State University (FSU) and its board of trustees. The suit alleges that FSU’s Department of Mathematics discriminated against Mr. Toth and Ms. Principato by failing to provide them with proper accommodations so that they could successfully complete required math courses for their respective degree programs. For more information on this lawsuit, please read the official press release.
The NFB is interested in speaking with other students who have print disabilities and have recently taken a college-level math course. If this includes you, please contact areid (at) browngold.com.
