Taking Action for DCPS Special Education

D.C. Public Schools (DCPS) currently leads the nation in the percentage of special education issues resolved through costly, adversarial hearings.

That's not a good thing.

Reducing the number and cost of these disputes between parents of special education students and DCPS would allow funding to be redirected where it really counts--to the classroom--and would help these students quickly get the services they need.

When we issued our report on the need to repair the system for resolving special education disputes in DCPS, we called it A Time for Action.

Now is the time. DC Appleseed
