We would like to see at least six more states reach the goal of graduating 60% or more of their students with disabilities with regular diplomas by the end of 2015.

CCD Principles for the Elementary and Secondary Education Act

Students with disabilities have benefited greatly from the Elementary and Secondary Education Act (ESEA) because the law requires their academic achievement to be measured and reported. As a result, more students with disabilities have been afforded the opportunity to learn and master grade-level academic content. While the Department of Education has provided states with the opportunity to waive certain elements of the law, the Consortium for Citizens with Disabilities Education Task Force urges Congress to reauthorize the Elementary and Secondary Education Act in the 113th Congress.
