As a candidate, President Biden promised to increase funding for IDEA and Title I and to double the number of psychologists, counselors, nurses, and social workers in schools. He supported the Keeping All Students Safe Act, which would end the use of seclusion and decrease the use of physical restraint in school. And he planned to increase the Office for Civil Rights' investigation and enforcement activity. What has the Biden/Harris administration implemented in its first 90 days and what do changes mean for special educators across the country? Attorneys Jackie Wernz and Kendra Yoch will dive into the Biden/Harris agenda as it relates to special education, work through changes seen and expected, and discuss what steps schools should take now to respond.
