Disabled kids need well-off parents


Affluent parents in New York City hire lawyers to sue for private-school tuition for their special-needs children, writes Jim Epstein on Reason. They’re able to “work the system to get the very best for their kids.”

But filing suit is expensive. Most parents have to settle for schools that “warehouse” special-needs students in “chaotic and unsupportive environments,” he write.

Expanding choice, such as offering special education vouchers and special-ed charters would serve more students more equitably at an affordable cost, Epstein argues.
