SCOTUS to hear arguments about learning requirements of special ed law

  • The U.S. Supreme Court will hear arguments this week in Endrew F. v. Douglas County School Board, a case that could change the federal definition of adequate special education services for the first time since 1982.

 

  • Education Week reports the 1982 case, Board of Education of the Hendrick Hudson Central School District v. Rowley, said special education students are entitled to a “free, appropriate public education” and that special education must confer “some educational benefit” — and now, the Supreme Court could clarify just what “some educational benefit” actually means.

 

  • The Obama administration has argued on behalf of the family at the center of the Endrew F. case, saying students should have the opportunity to make “significant educational progress,” though school district associations have argued on the side of the Douglas County School board that the current standard is enough to ensure adequate services.
