[Source: Disability Scoop]
The Trump administration wants to delay implementation of an Obama-era regulation designed to ensure that kids from certain backgrounds aren’t unnecessarily placed in special education.
In a Federal Register notice, the U.S. Department of Education is seeking comment on a plan to delay enforcement of what’s known as the “significant disproportionality” rule for two years.
At issue is a rule finalized in the closing weeks of the Obama administration aimed at preventing overrepresentation of minorities in special education.
