California Lawsuit Targets Special Education Services

The Contra Costa (CA) Times (5/6, Noguchi) reports on a lawsuit that "could vastly expand services for disabled students in California, and greatly increase the costs of educating them," noting that it alleges that the state is "shirking its responsibility to ensure disabled students receive" federally guaranteed "free and appropriate education." The complaint alleges that "schools fail to identify and educate students with disabilities in the 'least restrictive environment,' to map out, implement and stick to individual plans for them, and to include parents in planning."
