LAFAYETTE, Colo. — A new book by attorney and consultant Peggy Burns and industry reporter Lisa Hudson provides insight on important legal disputes in special-needs transportation.

Education Compliance Group’s Defensible Decisions about Transporting Students with Special Needs: Lessons Learned from Legal Disputes will begin shipping Aug. 27. It’s available for purchase at a 20-percent pre-publication discount until Aug. 20.
