U.S. DOJ submits Statement of Interest in favor of Limited English Proficient parents and students in T.R. lawsuit
ELC applauds the U.S. Department of Justice for joining with our clients in opposing the School District of Philadelphia's motion to dismiss our claims of discrimination based on national origin and language barriers. The complaint, T.R. et. al. v. School District of Philadelphia, filed by ELC and the Public Interest Law Center, with the support of Drinker, Biddle & Reath, alleges in part that the School District of Philadelphia unlawfully refuses to translate or sufficiently interpret special education and other vital documents, thereby depriving parents of meaningful participation in their children's education.
