Later this month, U.S. Secretary of Education Betsy DeVos will submit a report to Congress on her recommended waivers of states’ and districts’ obligations under the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA) during the COVID-19 pandemic. Congress will then determine whether waivers should be granted. If provisions of IDEA are waived—even temporarily—school-aged children with disabilities and their parents could lose their rights to participate in the public education system.

Today, we are launching an awareness campaign — #MyIDEAmatters — and we’d love for you to join us!
