In their briefs to the Supreme Court, Drew and his family argued that schools should be obligated to provide children with disabilities with "substantially equal opportunities to achieve academic success, attain self-sufficiency and contribute to society." They won the support of the Obama administration, whose Justice Department submitted an amicus brief calling on the high court to find a requirement that children have an opportunity to make "significant educational progress."
More than 100 members of Congress also support Drew and his parents, arguing in an amicus brief that the just-more-than-trivial standard is "vanishingly low" and runs contrary to Congress's intent in IDEA.
