Disability Advocates Fight to Close Lubbock State School
Disability advocates took their fight to have the Lubbock State School closed to the steps of the Texas capitol. The State School has been under fire recently after the release of a report on a 2005 Department of Justice Investigation.
On Monday, advocates used props like a mock report card to show their disdain for the school. Speakers at the rally spoke out against the reported poor standards of care, and staff shortages.
