Extractions: Superintendent, District of Columbia Public Schools INTRODUCTION According to Title VI of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, "No person in the United States shall, on the ground of race, color, ornatlonal origin, be excluded from participation in, be denied the benefits of; or be subjected to discrimination under any program or activity receiving federal financial asslstance." Related Federal Regulations state, "School systems are responsible for assuring that students of a particular race, color, or national origin are not denied the opportunity to obtain the education generally obtained by other students in the system" (33 Federal Register, 4956). This law has been specifically interpreted as applying to school children classified as non- or limited-English proficient (NEP/LEP) by reason of having an other-than-English home language background. Such a condition is held to preclude the student from an equal learning opportunity in an all-English-medium classroom ( Lau vs. Nichols

Extractions: Proposed Rulemaking on Harassment February 6, 2002 My name is Bob Summersgill. I am President of the Gay and Lesbian Activists Alliance of Washington, DC (GLAA), the oldest continuously active gay and lesbian civil rights organization in the country. Thank you for the opportunity to comment on the proposed regulations. As you may be aware, GLAA's first lobbying success was persuading the DC Board of Education in May 1972 to ban discrimination on the basis of sexual orientation throughout the public school system. We have been involved in a number of other issues involving the school system over the past 30 years. GLAA began urging the DC Public Schools to adopt a policy to protect students from harassment in August 1999. This led to Superintendent Arlene Ackerman's Directive on March 29, 2000 on harassment and sexual harassment against students.
