U. S. Supreme Court Case Decision
Endrew F. v. Douglas County School District Re-1
This is an interesting case where the Supreme Court ruled that the school district should “[t]o meet its substantive obligation under the IDEA, a school must offer an IEP [individualized education program] that is reasonably calculated to enable a child to make progress appropriate in light of the child’s circumstances.” The Court additionally emphasized the requirement that “every child should have the chance to meet challenging objectives.”
