A federal judge has agreed to release Washington, D.C., schools from a 7-year-old order overseeing the transportation of their students in special education. The supervision had been brought on by a class-action lawsuit over the city's chronic failure to get students with disabilities to class on time. An attorney for the plaintiffs said the judge's decision, which would allow D.C. schools to fully exit the case as of Oct. 1, will offer school officials the opportunity to show that they are ready during summer and the beginning of the school year.
