Renee v. Duncan, No. 08-16661

By FindLaw Staff | Last updated on

In a challenge to a Department of Education regulation permitting teachers participating in alternative route programs to be considered "highly qualified" under the No Child Left Behind Act, an order granting summary judgment to the Department is vacated with instructions to dismiss the action where plaintiffs lacked standing to challenge the regulation because they could not show that invalidating the regulation would personally benefit them.
