"County of San Diego v. California Special Education Hearing Office": A Misapplication and Drastic Expansion of IDEA Coverage.
Richer, Tobin P.
Journal of Law and Education, v26 n2 p1-33 Apr 1997
Explores the continuing difficulties facing federal courts when pressed with coverage decisions under the 1990 Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA). In a San Diego decision upholding the "appropriateness" of an emotionally disturbed student's placement in a private residential treatment center, the district court departed from well-established case law and drastically extended IDEA coverage to noneducational areas.
