The Supreme Court of Canada recently awarded Jeffrey Moore, a student with dyslexia, about £62,546 for private-school tuition after the North Vancouver school board cut a programme for dyslexia to save money. Some say the decision could mean more parents will seek private-school tuition reimbursement if they disagree with a school's proposed programme. Others point out that the Moore case calls into question schools' programming decisions, and specifically in this case, concerning whether the district did enough to save the dyslexia programme. Both sides predict more litigation on the matter.
