New in Round blue button Endrew Decision Creates Important New Opportunities for Students with Disabilities (9/2017) 

The Bazelon Center’s paper describes how Endrew rejects the “bigotry of low expectations.”   With needed supports, the Supreme Court observed, most children with disabilities are capable of meeting grade-level academic expectations.  Endrew requires schools to provide these students special education designed to enable them to become academically proficient and to advance from grade to grade.  For the small group of students with significant cognitive disabilities who cannot meet grade level standards, Endrew requires schools to provide special education that enables them to meet challenging and "appropriately ambitious” goals.  For these students, progress may be measured against “alternate academic achievement standards” designed to promote further education, work, and independence.  The Center is interested in hearing about your experiences in securing appropriate special education for students post-Endrew and in collaborating to advance implementation of Endrew.
