Support for Students with Disabilities in Supreme Court’s Hands
The U.S. Supreme Court has been asked to detail which services are deemed appropriate for a student’s educational experience. The basis of the inquiry involves parents discovering their autistic son made further progress at a specialized private school. After the parents asked the local public school to offer the same level of services the private school provided their son, the district office declined. As a result, the parents sued the district to cover the private school’s $70,000 tuition.
