Supreme Court granted certiorari in IDEA case
Kyle Webster at 12:00 AM ET

On January 16, 2009, the US Supreme Court granted certiorari in six cases, including a case concerning the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA). The case examined whether IDEA permits a tuition reimbursement award for a student unilaterally placed in private school by parents from a public school district where the student was not enrolled in special education or other similar programs. The Supreme Court eventually ruled in favor of the parents, stating that under IDEA, a public school district must reimburse for the cost of private education when it fails to provide free appropriate public education.
