DeVos Rescinds Guidelines
The Education Department has rescinded 72 documents which outline the rights of students with disabilities. These documents play an important role in clarifying the rights of students under the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act and the Rehabilitation Act. The law remains in force, but the ability of parents, educators, and students to understand and apply the law has been undermined. If you’ve ever tried to read a piece of undigested legislation, you know how difficult and confusing it is.
Call Betsy DeVos’s office to express your disapproval of the Education Department’s removal of these documents: (202) 401-3000.
