School districts ignoring the laws
Four school districts in Oklahoma are refusing to give special needs students vouchers to attend private schools - in direct violation of state law. Sounds familiar. Both Washoe and Clark County school districts in Nevada refused to follow the state's empowerment law (Clark County followed some, but not all of the law) and the State's department of education refused to enforce the law.

On a side note, Florida, Georgia, Ohio, Utah and Arizona offer special needs vouchers or special needs tuition tax-credits to attend private schools.
