Congress Wants Your Great IDEAs
Washington, DC. On June 6, 2002, Congress unveiled a new website called Great IDEAs. They are asking parents, teachers and others for recommendations about how to strengthen and improve the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA).
"We have heard testimony from teachers, parents, students, and scholars on the best ways to accomplish this goal -- but as often is the case with a major legislative review, there are many more interested individuals and organizations than there are seats at our subcommittee hearings."
that reason, we believe it is important to hear directly from you. To
that end, we have established a link on the committees website
that will allow you to give us your input."
"To help guide your comments, some of the key topics that our members are interested in learning more about include:
"Committee members are eager to consider your thoughts on these issues as we prepare to reauthorize IDEA. We look forward to your assistance in assuring that no child with special needs is left behind."
