WPR: The U.S. Department of Justice (DOJ) says the state's education department must provide more oversight of disabled students at private voucher schools. The letter to DPI from the DOJ was obtained by Disability Rights Wisconsin (DRW) and the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) and says that the state must ensure that voucher schools comply with the Individuals with Disabilities in Education Act.
Lisa Pugh is public policy coordinator with DRW: "This letter confirms what we've been saying for years that there's rampant discrimination against students with disabilities in the state's choice program. Finally we have the attention of the U.S. Justice Department saying that there needs to be some correction of that."
The letter is a response to a complaint filed in 2011 against the Milwaukee voucher program by the ACLU, DRW, and several parents.

Voucher Schools and Supporters Liars, they have Discriminated Against Disabled Students.
They've denied it for years, but now, they've been caught. The thing is, if they can lie about disabled students, would it be so hard for them to lie about their schools? Are you getting the feeling we might have to watch these crooks constantly?
