It’s Time to Enforce IDEA

11 07 2012

If you’re anything like me, you’re tired of fighting for your child’s rights to be enforced… Year after year fighting for the law to be followed wears on the heartiest… on the stubbornest… on the parents of children who need special education services. We get tired of having to educate educators about the legal definitions of terms like “general curriculum”, “least restrictive environment”, “accommodations”, “modifications”… and the list goes on.

I think what irritates me most is that there is a pretty good law out there already– The Individuals with Disabilties Education Act– but it’s not being enforced.

Please sign this petition: https://petitions.whitehouse.gov/petition/enforce-individuals-disabilities-education-act/shvRJcx2 asking that the Federal Government start taking this law seriously and start enforcing IDEA.

If we can get 25,000 signatures by August 10, we will get a response from the White House. That’s how the “We The People” petitions work. Will you help me get the attention of the President on this very important issue? Please forward this link, post it to Facebook and Tweet at will– https://petitions.whitehouse.gov/petition/enforce-individuals-disabilities-education-act/shvRJcx2

Our children deserve a chance to pursue further education, employment and independence.

Thank you!
