CLE files amicus brief in NAACP v. DeVos (August 29th, 2020, PDF) – On Friday, September 25th, the U.S. Department of Education announced that it would not appeal the federal district court’s order in NAACP, et al. v. DeVos, et al., overturning the Department’s regulation for allocating CARES Act COVID-19 relief funds to provide equitable services to students and teachers in private schools. The Center for Law and Education filed an amicus brief, which provided a detailed analysis of the faulty reasoning behind the Department’s determination that a count of all students was the appropriate measure for determining equitable services.
