Students at a Chicago-area high school have collected more than 3,000 signatures from staff and students in support of their campaign to end the use of language that is offensive to people with disabilities. Some 75 universities, colleges and schools in Illinois participated in similar activities last month as part of a national campaign sponsored by the Best Buddies mentoring program. "Hopefully this campaign will mean people will always be thinking about their choice of language," one student said.
