Board of Education v. Rowley

A 1982 U.S. Supreme Court ruling that reversed a lower court order to a Westchester County, New York, public school to provide a free sign-language interpreter for 11-year-old Ann Rowley, who was deaf. The Court held that the Federal EDUCATION FOR ALL HANDICAPPED CHILDREN ACT OF 1975, mandating “free appropriate education” for all disabled public school children, only required schools to make public schools accessible to the handicapped. The law did not require schools to provide individual services “to maximize each child’s potential commensurate with the opportunities provided other children.”
