Are schools liable for not recognizing students' disabilities?

The U.S. Supreme Court is considering whether schools can be held liable for failing to recognize that students have learning disabilities. On Monday, the court asked the Obama administration to weigh in on the matter, as justices consider whether a California mother can file a negligence claim against her daughter's school district. The mother claims the district did not identify, locate and evaluate her daughter for learning disabilities -- as is required under law. Education Week/School Law blog  (via Accomplished Teacher)
