CEC in Politico

9/30/2013

CEC’s Deb Ziegler was interviewed in Politico today in response to a new study on charter schools from the Manhattan Institute for Public Policy Research, saying that charter schools and all public schools must be vigilant, according to federal law, about identifying whether students have disabilities throughout their time at school and making sure they get the services they need, and that, while charter schools may deny it, Zeigler noted that a GAO report from last year found that some charter schools may be counseling children out of attending their schools.
