Proposed civil rights data changes draw praise, concern, paperwork complaints
from Education Week
The public comment window closed this week on proposed changes to the massive trove of civil rights data the U.S. Department of Education collects from every public school in the country. The proposed changes — including the addition of new data on religous-based bullying and the elimination of an array of data points — drew praise from advocates concerned about anti-Semitism in schools, but concern from civil rights groups and policymakers who believe the elimination of some data will make it more difficult to weed out disparities.
