Accredited Online Colleges and Disability Education

Finding a sustainable, accommodating job can be difficult for someone with a disability; while the unemployment rate for those without disabilities is about 8%, for individuals with a disability, it is a whopping 15%. As with the general population, the level of education and training after high school that a person with disabilities receives is a key factor in their ability to find work. The unemployment rate for all groups with a four-year degree or higher is only about 4%."
