The following statement can be attributed to Ian Rosenblum, Executive Director of The Education Trust–New York:

“While the Trump Administration’s failure to protect students’ civil rights is shameful, we are grateful to the New York State Education Department and Board of Regents for providing state leadership on this crucial issue. Racial disparities in special education are unacceptable, and implementing the ’significant disproportionality’ rule is a clear step in the right direction on behalf of students.”
