In two special-education cases, a state board ruled that two Massachusetts school districts must allow two students with special needs to attend out-of-district private schools. Likely to cost between $30,000 and $100,000 per year, the tuition for each student to attend a private program will be paid by the districts and subsidized in part by the state and federal government. State data from similar cases have shown that the board often rules in favor of the schools.
