More Special Education News: out of Wisconsin

Yesterday the U.S. Supreme Court published its opinion in Forest Grove School District v. T.A. (see previous post), while the Milwaukee Sentinel-Journal reported that earlier this month, U.S. Magistrate Judge Aaron E. Goodstein issued an order for:

Milwaukee Public Schools to launch a wide search for students who didn’t get special education services they should have gotten between 2000 and 2005 and to figure out what needs to be done to make that up to them.

The suit was brought by Disability Rights Wisconsin, the protection and advocacy system for Wisconsin.
