Statement of the CCD Education Task Force Co-chairs Upon Announcement to Delay Compliance of the Equite in IDEA Rule
The CCD Education Task Force Co-chairs expressed disappointment at the announcement to delay the compliance date for the Equity in IDEA regulation. We have long been aware and research shows that students of color and other minorities are disproportionately referred to special education and subject to unfair discipline practices. There is no good reason for this delay. CCD will be drafting comments in response to this notice and urging others to do so.
