Bryce's Law Revisited - Kansas City Policy Breakfast

Bryce's Law Revisited
 
Event Details: 

Have you ever heard of "Bryce's Law?"

Probably not, and that's part of the problem for many children with special needs in Missouri.

The 2013 law is designed to help them get the education they need, but not one student has been allowed to benefit from it.

This presentation will explain why that's the case and why the US Supreme Court's Trinity Lutheran v. Comer case might help empower these young people.
