Plan for Segregated New "Special" School Prompts Suit

From the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel:

"If they were building a smaller school, we wouldn't be suing them," said Jeffrey Spitzer-Resnick, managing attorney with Disabilities Rights Wisconsin. "Walworth County's decision was to not only build a new school, but to build a bigger school, to put it on the county grounds where the nursing home and jail is, to build a seven-foot fence around it" and further segregate the students.

The Walworth County Board of Supervisors will spend $22 million on the school.
