The Office for Civil Rights (OCR) at the U.S. Department of Education (ED) released new data they are promoting as proof that “OCR has, on average, resolved almost double the number of civil rights complaints per year compared to the prior eight fiscal years.” The accompanying press release also said, “OCR has achieved a 60% increase in the number of complaint resolutions that required schools to make changes to protect students’ civil rights.” In news coverage provided by Education Dive, Denise Marshall, COPAA executive director was quoted as saying “We are concerned. Rather than looking at systemic relief for a number of students, OCR is microscopically resolving case by case. We have no indication from families and students that there has been any meaningful changes for students subjected to discrimination/civil rights violations. Closing or resolving a case is not, on its face, an indication of better student results.”
