    Brown v. Board of Education [TimeToast](https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FwxprgouAYU)
    Linda Brown was denied admission into an all-white school. Her father filed a case-action suit against the Topeka Board of Education. Mr. Brown's lawyer challenged the separate but equal doctrine. The defendants felt the states could educate their children as they wished (Yell, 2021). The ruling was that segregated schools were unequal. The ruling ended in the overturning of the separate but equal doctrine. Students with disabilities benefited by being granted Free Appropriate Public Education.
  • Individuals With Disabilities Act (IDEA)

    Individuals With Disabilities Act (IDEA)
    The ultimate piece of legislation that ensures children with disabilities have access to a free appropriate public education (McLeskey, 2018). Students with disabilities can attend the school they would if they did not have a disability. IDEA conducts how states provide special education and related services to eligible persons from birth to adulthood. (https://youtube.com/watch?v=RKT5UWc4Nnl)
  • Board of Education v. Rowley

    Board of Education v. Rowley
    Amy was a deaf student, but her FM hearing aids helped her to function well in her LRE classrooms. The school district disagreed with her parents that she needed a qualified sign-language interpreter. After losing with the school district, the Rowleys appealed to the US District Court and won. Amy received her FAPE, as is the intent of IDEA (Marsico, 2018). (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vlXSW-DYVm8). IDEA requires all states to educate students with disabilities under FAPE (Marsico, 2018).
  • Honig v. Doe

    Honig v. Doe
    John Doe, a 17-year-old, had a disability that presented challenges in controlling his behavior. He was suspended for five days with impending expulsion. His grandparents argued that his disability under IDEA meant he should not be expelled. The court ruled that the school district could not expel students when the disruptive behavior is due to their disability. No student with a disability can be suspended for more than ten days (Steketee, 2022). (https://www.britannica.com/topic/Honig-v-Doe)
  • Americans with Disabilities Act

    Americans with Disabilities Act
    A federal civil rights legislation provides equal opportunity for people with qualifying disabilities. This law prevents people with disabilities from experiencing discrimination. Places of employment, government institutions, and public accommodations must be accessible to people with disabilities (Blanck, 2019). In complying with the ADA, schools can not discriminate against students with diseases that do not cause a threat to others (McLesky, 2018). https://www.youtube.com/watch/v=g1Q1BgpJnWl
