Transition from School to Work for Minnesota's Youth With Disabilities: An Oral History

Description

Conducted and transcribed eight interviews with persons who were involved in developing and implementing policies during the 1980s and '90s that helped reduce the unemployment rate among youth with disabilities in Minnesota. This rate is well below the national average, mainly thanks to these policies in the areas of Special Education, Vocational Education, and Vocational Rehabilitation.

The interviewees were Cathy Carlson, Stephanie Corbey, David R. Johnson, Sandra Lewandowski, Lloyd Petri, Vernon Schultz, Barbara Troolin, and Bob Vaadeland. Transcripts will eventually be posted on the Minnesota Historical Society Web site; in the meantime, they can be obtained from Norena Hale at norena.hale@gmail.com.
