Survival Coalition sends letter to Senate Help Committee over Betsy DeVos’ during confirmation hearing.

The Survival Coalition of Wisconsin Disability Organizations sent a letter to raise concerns over the testimony of Mrs. Betsy DeVos during her Senate confirmation hearing regarding education of students with disabilities.  Her overall lack of understanding regarding the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA) and efforts to discuss accountability raised significant red flags.  As the nation transitions into new leadership, our coalition anticipates changes to education will be in the forefront. Protecting the rights of students with disabilities in education and holding all schools accountable for educating children with disabilities will be a priority for the Survival Coalition of Wisconsin.
