Date training recorded: Dec 5, 2017
Trainer(s): Arlene Mayerson
Sponsoring Organization(s): Disability Rights Education and Defense Fund (DREDF)
It had been over 35 years since the Supreme Court of the United States (SCOTUS) decision in Board of Education v. Rowley interpreting the meaning of the lynchpin of the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA)- the right to a free appropriate education (FAPE). In those 35 years, lower federal courts developed watered down and ineffective formulas for determining if students with disabilities were receiving FAPE. Many courts held that students with disabilities were receiving FAPE if they received more than a de minimus educational benefit. This year, SCOTUS revisited the meaning of FAPE, rejecting these low standards i. In this webinar, we will hear from an author of the disability community amicus brief in Endrew and one of the thought leaders in this arena about the implications of Endrew for students with disabilities and their advocates.
