Question 3 Item 3 (The following passage is a letter from the then vice president George H. W. Bush to the Presidential Search Committee of Gallaudet University.) March 1, 1988 Mr. Philip Bravin Presidential Search Committee Gallaudet University 7th and Florida Avenue, NE Washington, DC 20002 Dear Mr. Bravin: It is my understanding that Gallaudet University* is in the process of selecting a new President. I also understand that you have identified six finalists who are highly qualified for the position, three of whom are deaf. I have a deep interest in disability civil rights. Over the past few years I have worked with many national and local organizations run by and for disabled people, including the National Council on Independent Living, the National Council on the Handicapped, Capitol People First of Sacramento and the Association on Handicapped Student Service Programs in Post-Secondary Education. I have also had many conversations with disabled leaders, including deaf persons, throughout the United States. And my office has served as the focal point for the development of the Administration’s disability policy. From this experience, I have become aware of the two basic principles underlying the disability rights movement; the right of disabled people to control their own lives and the right to integration and involvement in society. Gallaudet University has a critical role to play in advancing these principles. It is held in the highest regard by deaf people throughout the United States and the world. It provides an excellent education and a meaningful future for thousands of deaf persons. More importantly, Gallaudet University is a symbol of leadership and opportunity, not only for deaf people, but for all of us. In the last two decades our society has undergone a quiet revolution. The Congress, the Courts and the Administration have strongly supported the right of people with disabilities to hold positions of trust and leadership. Our government has enacted numerous laws to ensure that disabled people are ensured equality of opportunity. Accordingly, as an entity funded by the Federal government, Gallaudet has a responsibility to set an example and thus to appoint a President who is not only highly qualified, but who is also deaf. I hope that the Trustees will keep Gallaudet’s critical leadership position in mind when they make their decision. Sincerely, George Bush Which of the following best describes the organization of the second paragraph? The author defends a controversial claim; then he presents examples that strengthen the claim. A The author summarizes his position regarding a cause; then he describes how he arrived at his position. B The author makes an assertion; then he lists strategically selected evidence in support of his assertion. C The author expresses support for a political movement; then he explains how the movement could be advanced. D The author outlines his approach to a problem; then he offers a more complete explanation of his approach. E Question 4 Which of the following best summarizes the author’s thesis? The Administration’s disability policy has been underappreciated. A Gallaudet University should appoint a person who is deaf as its next president. B The author deserves more credit for the Administration’s disability policy. C Gallaudet’s leadership misunderstands the goals of the disability rights movement. D Congress and the Courts can do more to protect the rights of people with disabilities. E
