Exclamation Alert! IDEA Threatened - Kids Need Our Help on April 29!

Alert! IDEA Threatened - Kids Need Our Help on April 29!

On April 10, the House Committee on Education and the Workforce voted to send H.R. 1350, "Improving Education Results for Children with Disabilities Act" to the House floor. The House is expected to vote on the bill within the next two weeks.

The bill weakens IDEA in significant ways that will harm children with disabilities. The bill introduces "optional" 3-year IEPs; eliminates IEP objectives and benchmarks; weakens procedural safeguards and protections for parents and kids; allows schools to suspend or expel kids who have behavior problems related to their disabilities for violating school "codes of conduct".

Please download and distribute this Alert: http://www.wrightslaw.com/nltr/03/al.0421.htm
