Submit your comment today to the Department of Education on why the Civil Rights Data Collection (CRDC) process is valuable. The CRDC helps shed light on possible civil rights
violations. Losing this data would make it much harder to identify
and remove barriers to equal educational opportunity.
This data is critical to making sure schools comply with their civil rights obligations.
Dear [Decision Maker],
Thank you for giving me the opportunity to comment on the Department of Education's Notice for the 2017-18 Civil Rights Data Collection (CRDC). The CRDC is critical to helping students, parents, educators, and policymakers identify and analyze barriers to equal educational opportunity. Too many students are discriminated against in our nation's schools, which interferes with their ability to learn. The CRDC helps shed light on possible civil rights violations and ensures that students are treated fairly.
Sincerely,[Your Name] [Your Address] [City, State ZIP]
