Reimbursement for Unilateral Parental Placements in Unapproved Private Schools under IDEA.
Osborne, Allan G., Jr.
West's Education Law Quarterly, v3 n3 p485-93 Jul 1994
In "Carter" the Supreme Court affirmed a ruling where parents of a learning-disabled student were afforded tuition reimbursement after unilaterally enrolling the student in a private school. Briefly describes rulings in eight other lower court decisions. Concludes that the "Carter" decision will have little impact on school districts that make good faith efforts to appropriately place students with disabilities. (32 footnotes) (MLF)
