Supreme Court raises the bar for educating students with disabilities

A unanimous Supreme Court decision on Wednesday, March 22, 2017 will raise the bar for millions of disabled children previously denied educational benefits. In what the Washington Post called “one of the most significant special-education cases to reach the high court in decades,” the justices ruled “…that a child’s “educational program must be appropriately ambitious in light of his circumstances” and that “every child should have the chance to meet challenging objectives” even if the child is not fully integrated into regular classrooms. Emma Brown and Ann E. Marimow have more details in this article at the Washington Post.
