Students with disabilities at UW-Oshkosh stage walkout accusing university of discrimination

A small group of students staged a walkout at the University of Wisconsin-Oshkosh this week, accusing the university of discriminating against people with disabilities.

Students said the university is violating the Americans with Disabilities Act and Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973.
