Medical Services under the IDEA: A Bright Line Test, "Cedar Rapids Community School District v. Garret F."
DeMitchell, Todd A.
International Journal of Educational Reform, v8 n3 p312-18 Jul 1999
The U.S. Supreme Court decided that quadraplegics like Garret F. cannot enter the schoolhouse gate without supportive medical services--vastly different from ordinary nursing services.
