Guidance With Special Education And Discipline

Most issues in education law come down to discipline and special education. When schools discipline students, they give students due process according to their own procedures. Most school districts do not allow schools to expel students without due process. Instead, the student brings their parents and attorney to an expulsion hearing to defend themselves.

According to the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act, schools must develop and implement an education plan for students who have special needs. Parents deserve to give their input on these plans. Schools must also place special-needs students in the least restrictive environment available. Regarding discipline, schools cannot expel students for conduct that is a result of their disability.

Insider Education Law Knowledge From A Former Teacher

You would be hard-pressed to find another lawyer with Igor Raykin’s background in education and school law. After many years as a teacher and administrator, attorney Raykin understands the system and knows many influential school officials and decision-makers.

Moreover, he understands how to communicate with educators. An aggressive approach generally is highly ineffective against educators who aren’t used to confrontation. This may lead many educators to dig in their heels and rely on stubborn school district lawyers. Schools can be highly cooperative, if you have a lawyer who knows how to work with them.
