Accessibility for Disabled on a Global Scale

http://www.nytimes.com/2013/11/25/opinion/how-to-do-right-by-the-disabled.html?_r=0

This article expresses the ongoing progress to increase accessibility for the disabled, not just on a local scale, but also on a global level. Not only will disabled people in other countries be able to gain easier access to places, but the treaty will benefit disabled Americans as well. More disabled students would be able to study abroad and travel with the implement of accommodations for the disabled. I did find it ridiculous that the reason the treaty to execute these beneficial changes was put down before was due to the thought of America losing its power and that disabled children would not be returned to their parents. If anything, it would increase America’s power with more people being able to study abroad and building relationships with other nations, along with the invaluable experiences and exposure to different cultures gained.
