NYC special ed lawsuit heads to Supreme Court

A lawsuit about special education in New York City is headed for the U.S. Supreme Court, and the Federal Government is siding against the City. Joseph Goldstein of the New York Sun reports on the case, writing:

The case is likely to set standards for when localities must reimburse parents for private school tuition for students with a range of disabilities. The New York City Department of Education says it must only pay for private school if, after a child is first placed in a public school special education program, the school is unable to meet the needs of the child. The city claims that any other policy will require it to pay for the bias many parents have toward an expensive private education.
