In an action alleging a teacher's constructive termination arising out of plaintiff's complaints regarding the treatment of disabled students, dismissal of the complaint for lack of standing is reversed where the broad statutory language in section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act and its corresponding anti-retaliation provision in Title VI of the Civil Rights Act did not demonstrate that Congress intended to limit standing under section 504 to only those with disabilities.
