The Senate voted Thursday to make the first major changes in special
education law in seven years, aiming to get help earlier to struggling
children, give teachers more freedom to discipline students and reduce
tensions between parents and schools. The only main point of contention
was over money, as senators overwhelmingly agreed to allow accelerated
spending in coming years but rejected an attempt to make the increases
mandatory. The Senate voted 95-3 to renew and update the Individuals with
Disabilities Education Act, the 1975 law guaranteeing equal education to,
by last count, 6.7 million children with disabilities.
