British Mom Loses Lawsuit over Private School for Special-Needs Daughter

A British mother of a special needs child lost a legal battle to get her county to finance her daughter's education in a $65,000-per-year private boarding school. The mother argued that her child needs a 24-hour curriculum of learning, supervision, and therapy.

Judge Richard Inglis ruled that the 11-year-old could receive an adequate education in a public day program at half at the price of the private school.

Parents of special-needs children in some parts of the United States have won lawsuits requiring their states to pay for private boarding schools if the public schools are inadequate for their children.
