Can having cerebral palsy affect a mans ability to get an education and maintain a job?

Not if mild. Cerebral palsy if mild should not affect a person's ability to work or get an education. Even if the motor handicap is significant, , if cognitive skills are intact, limitation of indipendent ambulation should not interfere.
Yes, sometimes. Fortunately there are many avenues to obtaining an education for people with cerebral palsy. The public school system, although sometimes difficult, can provide a great eduction. Many colleges and vocational schools also support people with cp. The job situation is not that great for everyone, but worse for someone with a disability. It depends on your level of cp, but more on your desires.
