Lawmakers look to rein in alternative diplomas
from Disability Scoop
A new proposal in Congress would ensure that parents of students with disabilities are provided more information before their child is taken off track for a regular diploma. Under a bill introduced In the U.S. Senate, states would be required to establish clear guidelines outlining which students with disabilities qualify for testing based on alternate academic standards. Who takes these modified exams is significant because doing so often disqualifies students from achieving at the level necessary for a traditional high school diploma.
