The Sixth Circuit Court of Appeals has ruled in favor of a couple with a Down syndrome child who sued the county schools.
The parents of Luka Hyde objected when the county schools tried to move him from his zoned school to a segregated school.
The ruling says under federal law that students with disabilities are supposed to be placed in the least restrictive environment.
The schools are ordered to pay for the private schooling the parents turned to.
The county schools recently announced a move to place students with disabilities within their zoned school so far as is feasible.
