What warning flags should I look for in the interview so I know if I should get legal representation?
We are thinking our son's teacher is behind this as she has open hostility towards us for taking her to task regarding her teaching methods or lack there of. Our son is a slighly slower learner (never has he been labeled as anything nor does he receive any special school services for educational needs - never qualified for anything of that nature) and she requested we sign a form waving her responsibility regarding his end of year test scores so they don't effect her teaching status. She currently has 5 of the kids in her classroom with this wavier and she was furious we refused. To us this gives her the green light to neglect our sons education and only focus on the students who will test well. Our reponse to the teacher was our son just need more teaching time with her and more school work to to do at home to re-enforce what she is teaching at school.
So if this happens again, her reporting suspicions of child neglect/abuse sould we still just interview or seek legal rep?
