Florida Senate Bill 1108: A Case Study and Analysis of Implications and Impact
Bailey, Michael R. P.; Bauer-Jones, Kate
Journal of Cases in Educational Leadership, v18 n1 p53-65 Mar 2015
In the summer of 2013, the State of Florida passed legislation that, among other things, gave parents of students with significant cognitive disabilities the right to refuse a separate curriculum and/or school for their child. This case frames the legal ramifications of Florida Senate Bill 1108 through the lens of the landmark Supreme Court case "Schaffer v. Weast". In doing so, it will explore how one family's struggle to navigate the special education system has taken on a new life in light of this legislation.
