    Website On Disabilities Act That Tripped Up Betsy DeVos Disappears! Gee Why?

    Website On Disabilities Act That Tripped Up Betsy DeVos Disappears
    A Department of Education website explaining the rights of students under the federal Individuals with Disabilities Education Act has vanished. That’s the same law that confounded new Education Secretary Betsy DeVos during her confirmation hearings.

    DeVos dodged questioning about the law last month, insisting it was up to individual states on whether to grant disabled students their educational rights, even though it’s a federal law that applies across the nation.

    New U.S. Attorney General Jeff Sessions has also blasted the act for its “special treatment of certain children,” blaming it for the “acceleration in the decline of civility and discipline in classrooms across America.”

    As DeVos danced around his questions, Kaine grew agitated, asking her point-blank if schools should have to follow federal law.

    “Should all K-12 schools receiving government funding be required to meet the requirements of the Individuals with Disabilities in Education Act?” he asked.

    “I think they already are,” DeVos responded, suggesting that no school is failing to meet the law.

    “But I’m asking you a ‘should’ question,” Kaine followed up. “Should all schools that receive taxpayer funding be required to meet [the law]?”

    “I think that’s a matter that’s best left to the states,” DeVos responded, essentially saying the federal government should abdicate enforcement of its own law.

    Kaine pretty much lost it at that point
    .
    The website appeared to stop working shortly before DeVos took office, the Seattle Post Intelligencer reported.


    Gee even general information on school rights' is bad to read about FFS!
    Hiding laws does not change the laws.
