Department of Education Returns to Strict Interpretation of IDEA Maintenance-of-Effort Clause
See this story from Ed Week. It begins:
The U.S. Department of Education this month took back an offer it made to school districts last summer that would have let them cut special education spending permanently, with only a one-time penalty, and for reasons other than existing exemptions in federal disability education law.As Justice Frankfurter said, wisdom too often never comes, so one ought not to reject it because it comes late. Kudos to the Department of Education for changing its mind here.
