Strengthen and Enforce Civil Rights Laws and Invest in Public Schools

The overwhelming majority of students with learning and attention issues attend public school and are covered by civil rights laws that prevent discrimination and promote equal access to education. These laws require schools to provide accommodations for students with disabilities and to provide specialized instruction and related services to students who qualify for special education. If the laws aren’t being carried out appropriately, parents of children with disabilities may take legal steps to ensure that the school takes corrective action. These laws serve as an important foundation for educational opportunity and must be preserved.
