NAPERVILLE, Ill. – Given the increasing use of online platforms in education, state Rep. Janet Yang Rohr, D-Naperville, is sponsoring a bill that ensures students with disabilities can access their curriculum.
“I have young children and have always been invested in education and learning,” said Yang Rohr. “We have seen many different students struggle during the pandemic, especially students who face other learning challenges. We have to provide all students with the necessary resources to achieve their educational goals, no matter what.”
Yang Rohr is sponsoring House Bill 26 with the intention of bringing more attention and assistance to learning disparities. Given the likelihood that online schooling may now be a significantly more prominent part of our educational future, Yang Rohr wants to ensure that school districts are considering all students when developing their curriculums.
“Reducing educational inequities should always be a priority,” said Yang Rohr. “When everyone has access to strong educational opportunities, we can lift up the entire community, and I will continue fighting so that all students have access to these crucial resources.”
