Article: "Questions Surround Attorneys' Actions in Special Ed Case" - From Voice of OC

The article linked below is part three in a series that discusses several special education cases in Orange County California.  In particular, the articles expose the reality of what many families have to deal with - school district saying "no" and spending money (and resources) to fight against families rather than providing the services to a student that a family has requested.

"Events [in this case] are symbolic of the intensity of the acrimony in the Garden Grove Unified and similar cases in Orange County, where school districts have been particularly resistant to providing special education services sought by families. Such battles have produced huge legal bills for both sides, frequently far exceeding the cost of services in the disputes."
