When schools make decisions, they take into account the generic needs of teachers, administrators and thousands of students. We make sure that their calculations include the needs of your student, specifically. Whether that means representing your children in a disciplinary hearing, or fighting to protect their right to access programs which you as the person most familiar with them believe to be in their best interest (including but certainly not limited to virtual / online education under the new MOCAP statute), we believe their right to an education is no less deserving of legal counsel and protection than any other right you consider fundamental, Constitutional, or even natural / inalienable. In other words, business litigation, probate disputes, and contract drafting keep our lights on. For a decade now, we’ve fought these fights, because they need fighting.
When schools make decisions, they take into account the generic needs of teachers, administrators and thousands of students. Who else can? Deliberation and honesty is necessary when these general goals conflict with the rights of specific students and employees, but a good starting point and a solid understanding of the various legal constraints relating to such deliberations means getting it right the first time (at least procedurally), and avoiding unnecessary costs related to procedural disputes; money better spent on teachers, students, and even administrators.
