The Derry case lives!
I had been quite about the Derry case from Manatee County in Florida. But the case, in which the parent claims her son needs a special education plan to maximize his learning potential and the school district claiming that the student is doing well enough without a special education plan, is still winding its way through the district court. Final arguments have been made, and a decision is now being awaited (and will be reported here when it comes down). For more info on the current status of the case, click here.
