Litigation and Students with Disabilities: A Persistent Concern
Katsiyannis, Antonis; Losinski, Mickey; Prince, Angela M. T.
NASSP Bulletin, v96 n1 p23-43 Mar 2012
Special education litigation remains a volatile area with significant practice implications. A review of the 2010 case law in the "Special Educator" identified discipline (manifestation determination, seclusion and restraints, harassment), evaluation/RTI, and postsecondary transition as specific areas of concern. School administrators should keep abreast of these developments to ensure that the rights of students with disabilities are observed, educational benefits are attained, and potential liability is minimized.
