Winkelman is for Victory?

Today the Supreme Court decided Winkelman v. Parma City School District which on paper removes the burden of parents having to hire a lawyer in order to sue schools over IDEA related incidents. The Associated Press suggests that untold numbers of parents don’t take legal action when it comes to their children’s free appropriate public education. Of course the Supreme Court did not rule that parents are entitled to free legal representation, the Court only decided that not having a lawyer would not bar parents from taking legal action. It appears that this is only a minor victory for parents of children with disabilities.
