Special-Needs Bill: Good IDEA or Not?

URL: http://www.jewishjournal.com/community_briefs/article/specialneeds_bill_good_idea_or_not_20050107

Under IDEA, students who require special services -- such as speech therapy, sign language interpreters or resource teachers -- must receive them by attending local public schools. Although some parents have successfully negotiated or even sued to allow their child to attend a private school and still receive financial support from their district for those services, for the most part, parents who want their child to receive a religious education must pay for additional services themselves.
