It's Complicated!

Did you know that people with a disability are less likely to have completed a bachelor's degree? Just 16% of people with disabilities completed a bachelor’s degree while 35% of people without disabilities completed at a bachelor’s degree. About 1 in 5 people with a disability had less  than a high school diploma, compared with 1 in 10 people with no disability. In a knowledge based economy, education counts!
