We need your help by 5pm TODAY! Please share!!

The US Department of Education has published its draft priorities for discretionary grant programs. The draft does not include universal design for learning (#UDL).  While the National Educational Technology Plan and the Higher Education Act emphasize the potential of UDL to raise educational opportunity and outcomes for all learners, this won't happen without funding of programs that can implement UDL.
 
You can read the regulations here:
http://www.regulations.gov/#%21documentDetail;D=ED-2013-OII-0146-0001.  
You’ll see the words “Comment Now” in the upper right corner. Even a few words in support of UDL can make a difference for our schools. Complete the form after you have made your comment by clicking on the “Continue” button on the lower part of the screen and providing the required information until you get a confirmation.

The deadline is TODAY -- 5 p.m. EDT on Thursday, July 24.  Please let your support for UDL be known!
