Supreme Court hands victory to parents of disabled children

The Supreme Court on Monday opened the door for more parents with disabled children to challenge school districts over the quality of their childrens educations. In a blow to school boards, the justices ruled that certain parents can sue without attorneys. That could be a green light to the courthouse for some of the 6.8 million families nationwide who have children who rely on special education plans.
