Education Ruling: OK To Shut Out Disabled Kids?

Quote:
The excellent decision came, however, containing a very dark poison. Judge Moukawsher proposed that certain children with severe disabilities be denied a public education. He says, "The call is not about whether certain profoundly disabled children are entitled to a 'free appropriate public education.' It is about whether schools can decide in an education plan for a covered child that the child has a minimal or no chance for education, and therefore the school should not make expensive, extensive, and ultimately pro-forma efforts." He claims, inaccurately, that "no case holds otherwise, and this means that extensive services are not always required."


As the article notes this is in clear violation of the Americans with Disabilties Act and he will most certainly be overruled.

It's the schools that are choosing not to spend their money on disabled students.

The schools need to shift money, cut pay for teachers, outsource work.

This is a reductio ad absurdum to tax payer funded schooling.

You will also notice this judge is not one of Trump's people. He is a Hillaryite.

Does this have anything to do with money saving/freeing up resources?

This main idea of behind this decision is that the state of Connecticut was spending too much money on wealthier districts and not enough on poor districts. That the severly disabled should be punished by having all funds cut as compared to the wealthier districts who will have some of thier funding cut is really something. While at first this is surprising this type of thinking has a history. Promininent liberal/leftists/progressives enthusiatistly supported eugenics in the first half of the 20th century.
