Hawai`i special education law struck down

By Associated Press

HONOLULU (AP) A federal appeals court has ruled that a Hawaii statute setting an age limit on special education violates federal law. The 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals Wednesday ruled Hawai`i must provide public education to students with disabilities up to
age 22.

Hawai`i enacted a law in 2010 that made students older than 20 ineligible for public school, prompting a class-action lawsuit. A federal law requires states that provide an education to students ages 19 to 21 to also offer special education for those the same ages.
