"In my, going on, 47 years at this business, few recurring problems have been as vexing as the pervasive use of and blind acceptance of guardianship (or conservatorship for California and Tennessee). Parents, professionals and advocates have a conveniently benign attitude and many times are even complicit in this overt removal of rights.
"Some are surprised upon learning that the undoing or termination of guardianship is known as 'Restoration of Rights'. However, few are really fazed by the information or change their behavior as a result of learning this. As one who is clearly a product of the 60s and who cut their teeth in the Civil Rights struggle, such a disregard of people’s rights is far more than disconcerting. For persons with a history of being oppressed, it is unconscionable."
