A federal investigation is under way in Massachusetts' Dedham school district where 13 students in a special-education class were allegedly left with other teachers so their instructor could provide home tutoring for a school official's child who is disabled. The investigation was prompted by a complaint from nearly 30 teachers, who allege that the school violated the civil rights of the students in denying them a "free, appropriate public education by not providing teachers trained in instructing students with disabilities."
