Letter: Investigate Educational Deprivations, Civil Rights Violations at Delco Juvenile Detention Center

In a letter to Pennsylvania Attorney General Josh Shapiro on March 25, Education Law Center and other child-serving organizations have highlighted that children placed at the Delaware County Juvenile Detention Center, in addition to the other horrific abuses they were subjected to, were deprived of their constitutional and civil right to an education and discriminated against based on their disabilities. The letter called for a comprehensive investigation, urging the Attorney General’s Civil Rights Enforcement Section to investigate systemic deprivations of education and civil rights violations.
