title : Religious Discrimination Now Can Be Reported, Measured in US Schools Via DOE
summary : U.S. Department of Education (DOE) leaders implemented new measures that will require schools to report the number and frequency of religion-based harassment of students.

This new data is intended to provide stakeholders, policymakers and educators critical details about religious discrimination problems, as well as a way to measure future progress.
