Major Flaws Identified With IDEA Complaint System
[Source: Disability Scoop]
One of the main tools that the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act offers families unsatisfied with their child’s special education services is the ability to file a complaint with their state, but new evidence suggests the process is riddled with problems.
States frequently fail to investigate credible IDEA complaints and, when they do, the investigators often are biased, follow-through is lacking and parents fear retaliation, according to findings from a report issued this month by the Council of Parent Attorneys and Advocates, or COPAA, a nonprofit that advocates for the rights of students with disabilities and their families.
