Schools struggle to meet the physical education needs of students with disabilities, according to a recent congressional investigation conducted in Maryland and six other states.
Released in June, the report from the Government Accountability Office, which is Congress’ investigative agency, shows schools offer opportunities for PE participation to students with disabilities that are similar to those of other students, but a lack of funding and teacher training hamper those efforts in general PE classes. In addition, students with cognitive and physical disabilities are less likely to participate in extracurricular athletics.
