In a unanimous 8-0 decision issued this morning, the U.S. Supreme Court ruled that schools must provide more than a “merely more than de minimis” education program to students with disabilities. Sending the case back to the 10th circuit, the Court did not define that standard but in the ruling stated, ““For children with disabilities, receiving instruction that aims so low would be tantamount to ‘sitting idly … awaiting the time when they were old enough to ‘drop out.’ The IDEA demands more. It requires an educational program reasonably calculated to enable a child to make progress appropriate in light of the child’s circumstances.”
