[Source: Disability Scoop]
Federal officials say that fewer than half of states are adequately meeting their obligations to serve students with disabilities under special education law.
Just 21 states received the “meets requirements” designation in an annual compliance review conducted by the U.S. Department of Education.
The remaining states were labeled “needs assistance” with the exception of Michigan and Washington, D.C. which were classified in the more dire category of “needs intervention.”
