Department of Education Revives Civil Rights Office
Finkel, Ed
District Administration, v46 n5 p47-48, 50 May 2010
This article reports on the mission of the Office for Civil Rights in the U.S. Department of Education to ensure equal access to education through compliance reviews. The Office hopes to use these reviews to provide technical assistance to help districts improve their performance. In late March, the Los Angeles Unified School District became the first of at least 32 K12 school districts nationwide to undergo federal compliance reviews intended to spotlight possible discrimination against specific groups of students that has resulted in persistent achievement gaps on standardized tests. The Office is responsible for ensuring that recipients of federal education funds comply with several federal civil rights laws.
