This case should send a loud message to school districts and the Hungerfords that they need to work with parents. They disregard their obligations under IDEA, and play hardball with families. They know most families with chidren with disabilities cannot afford to hire an attorney and fight them. Most just give up and go away. Forest Grove on its attorney's advice was too arrogant to accept the initial hearing officer's decision. Instead they will probably ending up spending more than ten times the cost of this child's education on the litigaiton. Shame on them. School districts need to be held accountable for spending this money and treating families poorly. It is time for the educators to learn a lesson! Make decisions for the children, not the administration.
