Governor signs modifications to Missouri IDEA statute

On May 28, 2002, Governor Holden signed a law bringing Missouri special education services in line with the federal Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA) standard. In December, 2001, a Missouri Court of Appeals ruled in Lagares v. Camdenton that Missouri law required a higher standard of services than the IDEA. As a result of Governor Holden signing the new law, the Missouri standard is now the same as the federal.
