Congress is set to vote on a provision that will waive school districts and states from their responsibility to educate students with learning and attention issues.
The law that protects them, IDEA (the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act) is an important and critical foundation of civil rights.
If their rights under IDEA are taken away — even temporarily — school-aged children with disabilities and their parents could lose their rights to participation in the public education system. We need to alert everyone, including people with disabilities and their families, that their rights are at stake and urge them to show Congress why IDEA matters to all of us, especially to our most vulnerable population.
