The U.S. Department of Education is fighting to delay a special education regulation two months after a federal judge found that the agency’s efforts to do so were illegal.
In March, U.S. District Judge Tanya S. Chutkan determined that the Education Department had violated the law in moving to hold off on implementing the “Equity in IDEA” regulations finalized under the Obama administration.
With Chutkan’s decision, what’s known as the “significant disproportionality” rule was to take effect immediately.
