Hi! I will be the professional that will be helping you today. I look forward to providing you with information to help with your question and concern
What happened when you addressed this with them? Did they look into it and take any action? Did they speak to you about it? I am just trying to get an idea of what the school did, once they were informed?
Thank you for the additional information. The school does have a duty to protect and look out for the minor child. In a situation like this, they need to be made aware of it ( which you did) and look into it and take action, to 1) determine what happened and 2) see that it does not happen again. If the school is unable to do so, you would not be expected to keep your child there and continue to pay tuition. In this case, the issue is how quickly you pulled him out and if the contract which you signed, addresses issues like these and if there is a protocol or procedure for them. You certainly have a legal basis that the school is unable to provide a safe learning environment and rely on that and their failure to act. If they refuse to pay, you need to sue them for the breach of the contract and show they failed to perform.
