Abstract:This article examines attitudes and opinions among members of the Mayor’s Council on Disability Issues (CODI) of Knoxville, Tennessee. Using focused interviews, respondent commentary is presented on topics such as the disability rights movement, employment and education, the nature of defining disability, and the functionality and relative importance of CODI as a whole. Paulo Freire’s (1968) model of oppression is used as a frame of reference to examine CODI members’ attitudinal assumptions of these issues.
