Feds: Students With Disabilities Illegally Denied Special Education
[Source: Disability Scoop]
Federal education officials say that for more than a decade Texas delayed and ultimately denied special education services to thousands of students with disabilities.
In a sweeping report issued Thursday, the U.S. Department of Education said the Lone Star State failed to ensure that the free appropriate public education guaranteed under the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act was provided to all of the state’s children with disabilities and Texas also did not make certain that all kids in need of special education were identified and evaluated.
