The Supreme Court, "Endrew", and the Appropriate Education of Students with Disabilities
Turnbull, H. Rutherford; Turnbull, Ann P.; Cooper, David H.
Exceptional Children, v84 n2 p124-140 Jan 2018
In this article, we analyze the Supreme Court's decision in "Endrew F. v. Douglas County School District RE-1" (2017), interpreting the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA) and its provisions creating a right of every student with a disability to have an appropriate education. We compare the "Endrew" decision with IDEA and the Court's previous appropriate education decision, "Board of Education of the Hendrick Hudson Central School District v. Rowley" (1982), on four key concepts: educational program, reasonably calculated, progress, and child's circumstances. We discuss the case's implications for systems capacity development and interpret "Endrew" as a narrative about students' ethical claim to dignity.
