Hurd v. Clark County School District lawsuit
reprises decades of special-ed problems
If you’ve ever seen the movie Catch Me If You Can, you’ll remember the title character, portrayed by Leonardo DiCaprio.
Frank Abagnale was a bright, charming but conscienceless teen who’d discovered he had a talent for scamming people.
Eventually, with the help of his wife and a good FBI friend — plus multiple stints in prison — Abagnale abandoned the marauding life.
Today he teaches businesses how to protect themselves from people like his younger self.
As Americans regularly learn, however, significant national institutions nowadays think likethe young Abagnale.
Their M.O., also, when it comes down to it, is: Catch Me If You Can!
Many Southern Nevada special-needs families — as evidenced by their lawsuits in federal court — see the Clark County School District is such an institution. CCSD, however, is not a special case. All across the country, more often than not, large public school districts follow the same method of operation.
