Journal of Law and Education Symposium on Rowley

The latest issue of the Journal of Law and Education, which is now available on Westlaw (sorry, it's not free anywhere online), contains a symposium on the Supreme Court's 1982 decision in Board of Education v. Rowley -- probably the Court's most significant case on the IDEA. The symposium contains the following articles:

John A. Lanear & Elise M. Frattura, Rowley Reconsidered: Revisiting Special Education's Landmark Case After 25 Years, 37 J.L. & Educ. 307 (2008);

Amy June Rowley, Rowley Revisited: A Personal Narrative, 37 J.L. & Educ. 311 (2008);

Julie F. Mead & Mark A. Paige, Board of Education of Hendrick Hudson v. Rowley: An Examination of Its Precedential Impact, 37 J.L. & Educ. 329 (2008);

Philip T.K. Daniel, "Some Benefit" or "Maximum Benefit": Does the No Child Left Behind Act Render Greater Educational Entitlement to Students with Disabilities?, 37 J.L. & Educ. 347 (2008);

Dixie Snow Huefner, Updating the FAPE Standard Under IDEA, 37 J.L. & Educ. 367 (2008); and

Jean B. Crockett & Mitchell L. Yell, Without Data All We Have Are Assumptions: Revisiting the Meaning of a Free Appropriate Public Education, 37 J.L. & Educ. 381 (2008).

As one of the guest editors of this issue, I'd highly recommend reading Amy's personal account of her (and her parents') experiences during the litigation. Fascinating alternative perspective to the one that we've all read in the reported case(s).
