They actually do, by law, if the school has a certain number of employees. I don't recall the specifics though. It's been a while since I last read up on it.
I think that refers to employees. Yes they would be required to accommodate employees under the ADA. I‘m not sure it would apply to students.

Admittedly I am going on my cousin’s say so who has a special needs child. And who was fairly aghast that DeVos was put into her position.

Right, was referring to employees. As for accommodating students, I don't know what the rules are, but I imagine there are legal obligations schools have to students as well.

In Louisiana, they don’t have to accommodate unless they receive vouchers from the state. However, some schools do have what they call reasonable accommodations. Something likes the child can be taken out of class for speech therapy from an IEP appointed therapist that provides by the state. Other school will offer speech therapy and other forms of therapy for an additional fee.

like how gay?
i mean we're all at least a little gay
so like 51% or something more fabulous?
I disagree. We are not all at least a little gay.

I may like bespoke dress shoes, but that's a sign of non-toxic masculinity as far as I'm concerned.

Dude you mentioned shoes. Your one drop is showing. Now if you wanted to start discussing which type of Louboutons make a persons feet and legs look better because of the eycatching nature of the red soles, then my gayness could have a conversation with your gayness.

Yes, but the list of what qualifies as special needs is huge and varied. You could have a student which has a mild speech issue which can count, a child with mild autism who excels in a particular area but doesn’t cause issues, someone with a vision or hearing issue, handicapped student ina wheelchair. These are all eligible to fall under special needs, but. One actually affect their learning. A student like my nephew with severe cerebral palsy isn’t getting anywhere near a private school. Neither is my other nephew who is oppositional defiant. Those sorts of kids no way are anywhere near a private/charter school
