Who is to blame for D.C.'s special education backlog?

D.C. staff too often cancel meetings with parents about children with special needs, contributing to a lengthy waiting list for services, said Richard Nyankori, the District's acting deputy chancellor for special education. Not everyone agrees, however: "From my experience, providers are pretty conscientious about showing up. I hate to say this, but I think they're looking for some justification for their lack of compliance," social worker Candi Peterson said. A U.S. district judge is holding hearings on D.C.'s failure to eliminate the backlog after a 2006 court ruling. The Washington Post
