In brief: 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.

In brief: 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.
