Advocates, Administrators Divided on Kansas Dyslexia Bill
For years, parents who say their children arenít receiving adequate services have been calling for change, arguing that many children with dyslexia go undiagnosed. Moreover, even when diagnosed, they say, those students often donít receive the specialized instruction they need.
A bill in the Senate Committee on Education would seek to remedy that. Senate Bill 44 has the support of the Kansas Coalition for Dyslexia Legislation, but opponents, including school administrators, say the bill is at best redundant and at worst a violation of federal law.
