The 31st Annual Report to Congress on the Implementation of the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA), 2009 describes our nation’s progress:
in providing a free appropriate public education (FAPE) for all children with disabilities,
in assuring that the rights of children with disabilities and their parents are protected,
in assisting states and localities in providing for the education of all children with disabilities, and
in assessing the effectiveness of efforts to educate children with disabilities.
The report focuses on the children and students with disabilities being served under IDEA, Parts C or B (P.L. 108-446), nationally and at the state level.
