Tell DeVos: Students with Disabilities Need Federal Protections

Published by

Betsy DeVos is at it again! This time her target is the removal of guidance documents that outline protections regarding the rights of students with disabilities.

Send your senator an email telling them to stop Betsy DeVos today!  We need to tell DeVos that students with disabilities deserve federal protections. Send that email by clicking here​.

Read below what our President Diane Ravitch had to say:

“During her confirmation hearings, Betsy DeVos seemed unclear about the extent to which children with disabilities were protected by federal law.

Democratic senators challenged her knowledge–or lack of knowledge–of the federal law protecting these children. Many assumed her unwillingness to comment reflected her ignorance of the Individuals with Disabilities in Education Act and other legislation and court decisions.

Now, however, there seems to be a darker reason for her incoherence. She doesn’t think the federal government should intrude into decisions that she thinks belongs to states and localities.

She has rescinded 72 “guidance documents” about protecting the rights of students with disabilities.

Do you trust DeVos to do the right thing by students with disabilities? We don’t. And the Senate needs to supervise her actions.
