Education Committee Hearing of the City Council

Metropolitan

 

On October 28 the Education Committee of the City Council held a hearing to examine DOE’s ongoing efforts to improve instruction for students with disabilities. The Metropolitan Parent Center submitted testimony on behalf of the many parents it serves stating that it believes “the DOE falls short in its endeavor to meet its responsibility to provide students with disabilities with their right to a Free Appropriate Public Education.” Under IDEA the District has a mandate to oversee and supervise the progress of the special education programs. As such, the MPC recommends that the DOE conduct a comprehensive assessment of the effectiveness of its initiatives. See attached.
