Virginia Spec. Ed. Proposals Shelved

In April, I blogged about a proposed plan in Virginia to change regulations on special education so that parents would not have to be notified before a student's special education services were terminated.

At the time, I said that I didn't think the plan was going to go far, which didn't require much insight on my part: Gov. Tim Kaine had already said he was against any such change. And now, the changes have been officially ruled out.

The proposed rules changes drew 77,000 comments--the most ever for a rules change, according to a state official.
