No Child Should Suffer Abuse At School
At Sand Law, our attorneys and staff take situations involving child abuse, discrimination and mistreatment at schools in Minnesota very seriously. No child should ever have to suffer the physical pain, emotional distress, humiliation, educational setbacks and other trauma that results from these situations.
Education laws and rights involving abuse, discrimination and mistreatment at school are very confusing. Many different actions, policies or behaviors could be considered inappropriate and outside of legal bounds. You should never feel like you have to know the law to know that something is wrong. Sometimes it is just a parent’s intuition that tells you that your child is hurting.
Keep A Journal | Record And Document Everything
Because school staff abuse cases are often complex, it is best to keep a record of anything that could be relevant to the situation. As soon as you notice that something is wrong, take the time to start a journal. Write down the dates, times, names and circumstances of anything out of the ordinary.
Keep a folder with any documents that could be relevant. This includes any notices sent home from the school, disciplinary reports, school policies or manuals, bills for medical treatment or counseling, and anything else that relates to your child’s education or injury. It is always better to have more information than not enough.
