Doyle Inn Master Jack Robinson Wins Unanimous Victory in Important Special Education Case in the United States Supreme Court.

Congratulations to Inn member and Master Jack Robinson for a very important decision at the United States Supreme Court.  In the 8-0 decision authored by Chief Justice Roberts, the Court held that school districts must give students with disabilities the chance to make meaningful, “appropriately ambitious. ”  The decision in Endrew F. v.
