Access to School Athletics for Students with Disabilities is Investigated

Demand for inclusive sports is on the rise, and the investigative arm of Congress is looking into how schools provide access to sports for students who have disabilities. While federal law prohibits the exclusion of students with disabilities from school sports, no standards are in place to help schools determine how best to provide physical education and athletic opportunities for such students. A Maryland law passed last year may provide a model for other states.
