Education Secretary Arne Duncan will announce today that the U.S. Education Department will begin a broad series of civil rights compliance reviews of school districts and colleges, The New York Times reported. The reviews, which will include six as-yet unidentified postsecondary institutions and 32 K-12 districts, will examine a wide range of issues, including racial and gender discrimination and treatment of students with disabilities, according to a draft of Duncan's speech reviewed by the Times and The Washington Post.
