House education committee leaders have asked the Government Accountability Office to find out which parts of the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act create the most paperwork for schools and to figure out why no state has taken advantage of paperwork-reduction pilot programs written into the law when it was reauthorized nearly 10 years ago.

U.S. Rep. John Kline, R-Minn., the chairman of the committee, and Rep. Todd Rokita, R-Ind., made the request in a letter last month.

The letter also said that nothing ever came of a provision that allows the U.S. Department of Education to create model forms for individualized education programs.
