Disagreements with the school system

If you disagree with your school system, the first step is to write a letter. Remember the letter should be professionally written; an emotional letter is not going to get you anywhere. To look an examples of letters, refer to the website The Art of Writing Letters. If the disagreement cannot be resolved between the existing people involved, the next step is to set up mediation. Mediation involves a third party who will listen to both sides and give suggestions. The parents are also entitled to a child advocate provided by the school system, to help decide on the best plan for the child. The last resort is to hire a lawyer and decide if the disagreement should become a lawsuit. Refer to the website for protection and advocacy organizations.
