Schools Must Open Sports To Disabled, U.S. Says
In an attempt to level the playing field for kids with disabilities, the government wants schools to give them a fair shot at making sports teams.
FOX News Radio’s Eben Brown reports:
The Department of Education is telling public schools that they must open athletic programs to students with disabilities, or at least provide teams and leagues that are of comparable standing as the existing ones.
Supporters of the move liken it to the adoption of Title Nine of the 1972 Educational Amendments, which guaranteed sports programs for female students.
Education officials say they don’t want to guarantee spots for disabled students on competitive teams, but allow a disabled person who can perform to have a shot.
