The lawyers at Scher Law have extensive experience with a variety of different education law disputes. Not every student gets the education they deserve without help. We have the knowledge and experience to help.
Every child has a right to an education. That right means more than just attending school every day. It means having the material presented in a way that allows the child to learn. It also means that every child should be free from harassment and bullying while at school. No child should be stigmatized or prevented from coming to school or from being given the opportunity to learn while at school because he or she is “different.”
If your child is harassed or has “fallen through the cracks” at school, then it is time to consider hiring an education lawyer. We know that your child is entitled to a meaningful education. We know the standards that teachers and principals must live up to. We know how to make sure your son or daughter gets the education that he or she is entitled to.
We know what resources ought to be available for students and what the process is for getting them. We know what kinds of accommodations that schools are required to make for their students. We know the process for having a child’s needs identified, including which professionals need to be involved and what assessments need to be done to ensure that identification is correct. We also know what the correct response is when a child has been suspended, expelled, or otherwise disciplined for problems related to failure to address the student’s needs.
