This is an excerpt from a journal entry I am writing for my first-year university transition course:

The annual pep rally is mandatory for all students, despite taking place in a crowded, hot gymnasium and making extensive use of strobe lights and deafening acoustics. This mandate exposes an atrocious oversight of students suffering from a variety of common mental health issues.

Can I use oversight in this context? I cannot find any other examples of 'an oversight of' on the Internet, unless the term is used to mean overseeing.

Any help appreciated!

    No, I don't think you can. Do you mean a disregard for the needs of students [with] mental health issues? Jul 25 '20 at 18:41
  • @KateBunting Yes, that is what I mean. Jul 25 '20 at 18:43
