Disabled Advocates Hail ED’s Athletics Dear Colleague Letter

Diverse Education (3/18) reports on the “renewed thrust to create and expand opportunities for disabled athletes” in the wake of the “Dear Colleague” letter from ED’s Office for Civil Rights last year reminding schools “of their legal obligation to provide opportunities for disabled athletes.” The piece notes that advocates for disabled students “applaud the directive as a game changer that will have the same impact for disabled athletes as Title IX did for women’s sports.”
