Part II examines Vergara, arguing that this new wave, by seeking to devolve policy questions from states to districts, mitigates these concerns. While the cost of special services may be an unexpressed criterion in many decisions made by school districts, nowhere does the IDEA explicitly allow cost to be considered.

In City of New York v. As this Part will argue, this form of remedy may evade the concerns that troubled past education litigation because plaintiffs do not ask the courts to dictate teacher tenure and dismissal policies to states and districts.

Judicial Micromanagement v. It is part of a national trend. M N. The result has often been that state legislatures and courts are left in a back-and-forth in which neither is able to reach a satisfactory endgame: like two boxers locked in embrace after too many rounds, each is too exhausted to end the matter on his own but unable simply to vacate the ring.

Part I outlines the two primary waves of education litigation, finding that as each wave led courts into the details of education policy, the courts withdrew, citing concerns about the separation of powers, local control, and judicial competence.
