NCLD President and CEO responds to the U.S. Department of Education IDEA Website Change
Last week, the U.S. Department of Education website about IDEA changed to another website that provides fewer resources for parents about the law. Today, Mimi Corcoran, NCLD’s President & CEO called on the Department to reinstate the idea.ed.gov website in the following statement:
“Parents rely on easy access to information about the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act so they can learn about their child’s disability and their civil rights. For years the idea.ed.gov website has served as a trusted and comprehensive resource, and we were surprised to learn that it now redirects parents to a website that provides less information. I would hope we could all agree that giving parents information about their legal rights is of utmost importance and I hope we see idea.ed.gov fully and quickly restored.”
