Feds: Schools Must Allow Disabled Students In Sports Programs

The Department of Education is ordering schools to include disabled students in existing sports programs, or create equal alternative options. 
Schools will now be required to have made "reasonable modifications" to their athletic programs or create new ones that have the same standing as their existing offerings.  The decision basically means participation in high school and collegiate sports is a right.  Schools failing to comply with the directive could risk losing federal funding.
