Caselaw

Esta acción de clase fue iniciada en nombre de los niños de un distrito escolar con una tasa del impuesto a la propiedad relativamente baja y de los cuales el 98% eran niños de ascendencia mexicana. Los peticionantes cuestionaron el hecho de que el Estado de Texas se valga de los impuestos a la propiedad para financiar sus escuelas, lo que significaba que los alumnos de los distritos más pobres recibían solamente dos tercios de los fondos que recibían los alumnos de los distritos más ricos.

This was a class action brought on behalf of children residing in a school district with a comparatively low property tax base - 98% of whom were Mexican-American.

Autism‑Europe adujo que la aplicación por parte de Francia de leyes relacionadas con la educación para personas con discapacidades era extremadamente insatisfactoria. La gran mayoría (80 a 90 por ciento) de los adultos jóvenes y niños autistas no tenía acceso a servicios educativos adecuados. En base a los índices actuales de ocupación de plazas en institutos de educación especial, Autism-Europe estimaba que se tardaría 100 años en eliminar el déficit de la lista de espera oficial, que entonces incluía a 39.514 personas (incluso más, teniendo en cuenta la definición de la OMS).
