Abstract
The spring 1996 issue of The Future of children on special education r eviewed the legislative and litigation history of the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA). This Revisiting article examines t he impact of the two U.S. Supreme Court cases setting forth school dis tricts' responsibility to reimburse parents of students with disabilit ies for private school tuition under certain circumstances. An extensi ve examination of published cases reveals that the number of cases lit igated has increased but that the courts are no more likely to decide in favor of parents than they were before the Supreme Court rulings.
