D.C. judge attempts to rein in special-education lawyers

Lawyers seeking to sue Washington, D.C., schools over special education must complete 16 hours of specialized training as well as other requirements meant to protect parents, says D.C. Chief Judge Lee Satterfield. The special-education legal industry has exploded in D.C., ballooning the system's special-education costs to about $300 million annually for 11,000 students with special needs.
