DOCUMENT INFO
Description: According to recent newspaper articles, parents of students with disabilities earlier this year filed a class action lawsuit in federal court, claiming that the California Office of Admin- istrative Hearings is in violation of the requirements of the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA) for impartial hearing officers (Marshall, 2008; Martin, 2008). Advocacy aside, the Supreme Court's landmark ruling in special education (Board of Education ofHendrick Hudson School District v. Rowley, 1982) indisputably set a far from optimal substantive standard under the IDEA-specifically, that the IEP must be "reasonably calculated to enable the child to receive educational benefits" (p. 207).
