The recent U.S. Supreme Court ruling in Endrew F. v. Douglas County School District is a victory for New Mexicans seeking special education and related services for children with disabilities.  The Individuals with Disabilities Education (IDEA) requires that State receiving funds to educate children with disabilities provide a "free appropriate public education" (FAPE). To meet the standards of a FAPE, the Court required that the IEP "must be appropriately ambitious in light of [the child's] circumstances," and acknowledged "every child should have the chance to meet challenging objectives."  To read more on the ruling, click here.
